The American Diabetes Association kicked off the 2015 Change the Future Chef Event with a patron reception at Miller Motorcars’ Ferrari Maserati Showroom on June 2nd. Among those in attendance were the co-chairs Shelly Tretter Lynch and James Parker.

The main event, on Nov. 3, is supported in part by Diamond Sponsor Stamford Hospital.  Master Chefs will prepare a unique and interactive multi-media farm-to-plate culinary experience at the Greenwich Country Club.

The evening will include a reception featuring exquisite hors d’oeuvres and aperitifs followed by a seated five-course dinner with wine pairings.

Through a live feed from the kitchen to the ballroom, guests will be able to participate in a cooking adventure in real time, guided by Master Chefs including Chef Rui Correia of Douro Restaurant, Chef Frederic Kieffer of l’escale, Chefs Lisa and Stephen Maronian of Sweet Lisa’s, Chef Bill Taibe, of Le Farm Restaurant, Chef Edward Varipapa of Leon’s Restaurant, and Chef Marc Weber, of On the Marc. This gathering of talented and entertaining chefs will benefit the Connecticut American Diabetes Association and its STOP DIABETES campaign.
