Common Threads, along with travel and food explorer Adam Richman, invite you to the Common Threads Chef Takeover Fueled by Circuit of the Americas.

The pop-up dinner series consists of five events throughout the country. Each event features a group of renowned chefs collaborating to create a themed meal, a silent auction, and a special guest musical performance.

All funds raised will benefit Common Threads programs, bringing health and wellness to students, families, and communities through cooking and nutrition education, getting one million children cooking for life by 2020!

Miami | September 7, 2017

Join Common Threads for a special themed dinner celebrating the beauty of food as art, as each dish is inspired by our chefs’ favorite artists and works of art, taking this delectable 5-course meal from the palette to your palate!

The evening will begin with specialty cocktails and delicious passed apps created by Chef Lorena Garcia, Chef Art Smith, and Common Threads students.

Following the cocktail hour, guests will be seated for a one-of-a-kind menu created by Chef Michelle Bernstein, Chef Shirley Chung, Chef Richard Ingraham, Chef Dustin Atoigue, and Chef Soraya Kilgore, with hand-selected wine paired with each course.*
