Emerging Chefs' C4 at IngenuityFest 2011

After last year’s experience at IngenuityFest 2010, I’ve known I’d be attending this year’s IngenuityFest for months. Then I read the Plain Dealer sneak peek on some of the featured artists and that sealed the deal.  

If you still need convincing, though, here’s yet another reason:

Emerging Chefs’ C4 at Ingenuity

For 4 nights (Sept. 15-18), 4 Cleveland chefs who embrace 4 dynamic culinary styles will descend on the trolley level of the Detroit Superior Bridge to offer a brunch and three dinners in Emerging Chefs’ typical Big Flavor/Bold Venue-style.   And with IngenuityFest going on 3 of those dates, you can spend an entire day on the Bridge, enjoying the talents of Cleveland’s culinary and artistic innovators into the wee hours of the morning.

C4 kicks off on September 15 with Chef Matthew Mathlage of Light Bistro (who also played host to IngenuityFest’s Cocktail Redux fundraiser earlier this year).

On September 16, which is the first night of IngenuityFest, AMP 150‘s new Chef Jeffrey Jarrett will be spotlighted.  I just had dinner at AMP 150 on Sunday evening and am happy to say the menu was just as appetizing as when Chef Cooley was there. 

Chef Brian Rosander of Rosander plays host for the final dinner on September 17, and Lincoln Park Bistro‘s Chef Pete Joyce will be putting together a delicious brunch on Sunday, September 18.

The dinners on September 15, 16 and 17 will run from 6-9pm and brunch on September 18 will be from 12-3pm.

With each meal taking place on the trolley level of the bridge, guests will get excellent views of the city and river.  Between the views and the fresh air that cuts through the lower level, the bridge is seriously one of my favorite spots in the city, which makes these 4 events even more of a draw.

You can pick and choose whichever meals you’d like to attend.  Tickets are $55 for each event ($65 for chef’s table), but if you can’t make up your mind, Emerging Chefs is also offering a $175 pass to all 4 meals for the “ultimate foodie.”

You can buy C4 tickets here.

If you can’t wait til September for an Emerging Chefs event, get your tickets for August 19’s ReHival before they’re gone. It’s Emerging Chefs’ first annual “Return to the Earth” dinner featuring Chef Kimberly McCune at the rural retreat of Meadowlane Farms.
