Three Chefs that need no introduction to most foodies , Rick Moonen of Rick Moonen’s rm seafood, Hubert Keller of Fleur de Lys and Burger Bar and Susan Feniger of Border Grill all took the same stage and had guests rolling in the aisles as they enjoyed great dishes from these Chefs that normally occupy a stage of their own. Andrew Knowlton, Bon Appétit's Restaurant Editor was on hand to host this Vegas UNCORK'D event and of course mingle with the over flow audience as they enjoyed this one of a kind event.
All three of these Chefs has mastered the art of entertainment in the kitchen and on TV. Guests had the opportunity to watch these Chefs prepare many of their favorite signature dishes and "dish" it out to each other as well.
Chef Rick Moonen started the culinary "theater " with his
Shrimp Corn ( Moon ) doggie with
For those who have never met this " high energy " Chef got to see what a talented Chef and personality he really is all the while exchanging laughs and barbs from Chef Susan Feniger and of course Chef Hubert Keller had to join in the fun as well.
The Masterful Chef Hubert Keller took the stage next and prepared his Maine Lobster Macaroni and Cheese "Au Gratin " as the guests watched intently. He was not alone as Chef Rick Moonen and Chef Susan Feniger assisted not only in preparing the dish but making Chef Hubert and the guests laugh with their kitchen antics.
The Border Grill is famous for Southwestern cuisine. It was no surprise when Chef Susan Feniger took center stage and prepared Peruvian Ceviche with Pickled Red Onions.
Chef Hubert Keller and of course the always humorous Chef Rick Moonen were at her side the whole time laughing and joined in the fun as she prepared and explained her dish to the guests.
All in good fun , this event was exactly as Vegas UNCORK'D billed it. It was improvisational theater in the truest since of the word.
