Chefs Bruce Kalman & Gavin Mills Join Forces

To Benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Two acclaimed Los Angeles chefs, Bruce Kalman of downtown’s Urbano Pizza Bar and Gavin Mills of Hollywood’s Wood + Vine will join forces on Sunday, April 1 for the first installment of a series of Cooking With Friends Events, each to be hosted by Kalman and Urbano. The inaugural event, “Pig & Beer,” features a multi course porcine feast, with beverages curated by “The Beer Chicks” Christina Perrozi and Hallie Beaune.

The chefs have hand selected Pigs from ReRide Ranch in Lake Hughes, CA, which offers free range, acorn fed herds.  From this, the two chefs will alternate in presenting and discussing each successive course, from the savory and sweet to the weird and wild, each paired with a new beverage of the Beer Chicks’ choosing.  In addition, area farmers have joined for the evening, with growers from ReRide Ranch, Weiser Family Farm, Coleman Farms, Thao Farms, and more arriving with donated products for the chefs to cook, as well many arriving in person to discuss their connections to the land, the dinner table, and our charity.  As well, the staff of Urbano Pizza Bar is volunteering their time and efforts for this evening.

Due to space requirements and menu planning, admission for this event is strictly limited.
