Second Harvest Hosts Chef’s Night Featuring the Chefs of LongHorn Steakhouse
“Year of the Steak” Series to Benefit Second Harvest’s Culinary Training Program
WHAT: As part of its commitment to the community, Executive Chefs Jens Dahlmann, Michael Senich and Josh Evans of Orlando-based LongHorn Steakhouse will prepare a special dinner for Second Harvest’s “Year of the Steak” Chef’s Night series.
Chef’s Night brings Central Florida’s top chefs into Second Harvest’s Community Kitchen to celebrate delicious food and raise funds for a good cause. This year’s series, named “Year of the Steak,” features local chefs and restaurants that have a “steak” in our community.
Guests will enjoy a four-course dinner beginning with a cocktail reception. The event will celebrate steak and the start of summer grilling season, and will also feature several chance drawings and prizes for winners.
All proceeds benefit Second Harvest’s Culinary Training Program, which provides students with the skills and inspiration they need to obtain an entry-level position in a food service establishment.
