Second Harvest’s Chef’s Night series will feature Sam Faggetti, executive sous chef at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, as well as executive pastry chef Rabii Saber. The two will collaborate on a four course dinner to benefit the food bank’s Culinary Training Program, which teaches at-risk and economically disadvantaged adults the skills needed to pursue a career in the food industry.
The cost of the dinner, which includes wine pairings and entertainment, is a very reasonable $100.
The Four Seasons (they’re not the entertainment, just so you know) dinner will be Thursday, January 14, at 6 p.m. at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, 411 Mercy Drive, Orlando.
