Caterers To Tantalize Tastebuds At Chair-ries Jubilee Arts Auction

Monday, April 8, 2013

The theme for Chair-ries Jubilee 2013 possibly could be “3D: Delectable, Delicious and Delightful” once you read the list of regional chefs and restaurateurs who will present their own version of art during the 6 p.m. social hour.

“Some of the best chefs and caterers in the region are returning to Chair-ries Jubilee,” Cindy Baker, co-chairwoman for the caterers, said. “Guests will have an opportunity to taste a variety of delicious foods as they walk among the auction items and bid on their favorite pieces.”

With “3D: Designate, Donate, Decorate” as this year’s actual theme, the annual fundraiser presented by the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce has eight regional chefs and restaurateurs already preparing for their culinary display.

Participating are Café Roma, The Catering Connection, CBC-Cleveland, Cleveland Country Club, Impressions Catering, Pam’s Florist and Catering, Ray’s Catering, and Romaine on the Go.

“As in years past, these culinary professionals will create what we like to think of as an ‘event within an event,’” Beth Gardner, co-chairwoman, said. “It really is an aspect of Chair-ries Jubilee that is worth the price of admission.”

Chef Shannon Ritzhaupt, Café Roma, will be back with “traditional Italian antipasto, which includes balsamic mushrooms, broccoli and garlic, caprese, marinated red onions and olives.”

Brandi Owens, with The Catering Connection, will offer turkey/cranberry phyllo cups and various appetizers.

CBC-Cleveland, in their second appearance, will create their flagship sandwich, the “Burns Tobacconist” Cuban. This savory creation includes marinated jerk pork, slow roasted and shaved, on a French baguette with smoked ham, melted Swiss cheese, spicy mustard and dill pickles.

Cleveland Country Club’s carving station will offer pork tenderloin, rolls and fruit, along with an assortment of their signature cheesecake bites. Nearby, Ray’s Catering’s station will feature shrimp.

Greg Hicks is creating a Nouveau taco station, including Thai shrimp with sweet chili, flank steak with chimichurri, jerked chicken with citrus mustard and vegetables.

Also returning for the second year is Romaine on the Go. Included on their menu will be homemade fried tortilla chips and mango salsa, guacamole and Mexican vanilla chess bars.

For those with a sweet tooth, Pam Mathews, Pam’s Florist and Catering, will serve cake and punch.

“We also appreciate the support of Cooke’s Food Stores, Ooltewah Discount Liquors and Tarver Distributing for beverages,” Ms. Baker said.

Chair-ries Jubilee will raise funds for arts in education programs in local schools. The event will take place Friday, April 12, at the Museum Center at 5ive Points.

The silent auction and social hour begin at 6 p.m., with the live auction set for 8 p.m. Tickets, available at the Chamber of Commerce and The Red Ribbon, are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
