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

As the presenting sponsor, Circuit of The Americas (COTA) has helped us bring these incredible pop-up dinner events to five of our markets this year, and has allowed us to launch programming in the Del Valle Independent School District this fall, fueling health and wellness for the children, families and communities in our shared hometown of Austin, Texas.

Each of the five Chef Takeover events 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 | November 29, 2017

UPDATE: Common Threads’ Chef Takeover Fueled by Circuit of The Americas has been rescheduled!

Join Common Threads and hosts Kristi Krueger, Michelle Bernstein, Alberto Carvalho, and Art Smith for an incredible themed dinner celebrating Food as Art as each participating chef creates a course inspired by his/her favorite artist or work of art.

The evening will begin with specialty cocktails and delicious passed apps by Chef Adrianne Calvo, and Common Threads students.

Following the cocktail hour, guests will be seated for a one-of-a-kind menu created by Bernie Matz, Norman Van Aken, Julie Frans, Deme Lomas, and Soraya Kilgore, with hand-selected wine paired with each course.*

Enjoy an amazing meal, beautiful views, and a special musical guest performance all while dining for an incredible cause.
