The James Beard Foundation journalism awards ceremony, at which Matt and Ted Lee are serving as emcees and first-course cooks, is a private affair. But a local sneak peek of the brothers’ awards dinner dish is free and open to the public.
On Apr. 29, the Lees and dish collaborator Matt Greene of Duvall Events will host a tasting demo at the catering company’s North Charleston headquarters. The event includes wine, with liquor drinks available for purchase.
Details of the dish have not yet been disclosed, but the Lees are apparently pumped.
“Chef Greene pushes us to dream bigger than we often plan to with our menu, and we are excited to have him cooking with us at the prestigious James Beard Media Awards in May,” Ted Lee is quoted as saying in a release.
Because there’s an attendance cap for the 5:30 p.m. tasting, reservations are required: E-mail info@DuvallEvents.com to claim a seat.
Duvall Events is located at 2816 Azalea Dr.
