Top chefs' cooking benefits kids


Campbell's scoop

By Polly Campbell
The Cincinnati Enquirer

Where to find who's who in Greater Cincinnati's culinary world:

The Children's Law Center has signed up an impressive roster of chefs for its first food-oriented fund-raiser. Julie Francis of Aioli, Jean-Robert de Cavel of Pigall's, Vik Silberberg of Celestial, David Cook of Daveed's, Elliot Jablonsky of Latin Quarter, Jeff Thomas of Jeff Thomas Catering and Kristy Schalck of Tousey House, will be there, among others. Marilyn Harris will be the master of ceremonies.

The fund-raiser will be 7-10:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Marriott RiverCenter in Covington, 10 W. Rivercenter Blvd.

The Children's Law Center is a non-profit organization that works to protect and improve the legal rights of children caught in the criminal justice system. Their offices are in Northern Kentucky, but the agency is expanding its efforts to Ohio. This fund-raiser is meant to help in that initiative.

The event will be dinner by the bite, plus cooking demonstrations from the chefs, all accompanied by wine from Cutting Edge Selections. There will be a silent auction, music from the Cajun band Lagniappe and a cookbook from the event.

Other participants include Bonefish Grill, Cincinnati State Technical College, the Hilton Netherland Plaza, Jeff Ruby's Tropicana, Mike Fink's and Zebo's Bistro.

Tickets cost $100 and may be ordered by calling the Children's Law Center, (859) 431-3313.
