The nights competitors will be fellow chef-celebs Jacques Pepin and Eric Ripert. Heres how it works. Bourdain will interview Pepin and Ripert about their backgrounds, best-selling cookbooks and favorite restaurants, producing the kind of conversation a food lover could only dream of, and then the two French master chefs will put their knives where their mouths are, so to speak, and prepare some favorite recipes while simultaneously answering the audiences questions.
Tickets cost $25 to $200, but if youre a VIP ticket holder, you also get to meet the chefs at a post-show cocktail party. Call 305-949-6722, or visit arshtcenter.org.
