4Rivers Smokehouse burst onto the Central Florida food scene in 2009 and everyone promptly fell in love. Josh and I included. We loved them so much we had them cater our wedding.
On Wednesday, March 25th, John Rivers, owner of 4Rivers, was the featured chef for Chef’s Night at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s . Every other month Second Harvest invites a local chef into their Community Kitchen where they work alongside Second Harvest’s culinary training students cooking a meal for 100 guests. The Culinary Training Program provides qualified, at-risk and economically disadvantaged adults with the with the skills needed to pursue a sustainable career in the food industry. The proceeds from the tickets to the event go back into hunger relief programs for Central Florida residents. It’s a wonderful chance to give back to the community and enjoy a delicious multi-course meal at the same time. The next Chef’s Night is May 27th. The featured Chef will be Kevin Fonzo of K Restaurant.
Our meal was full of Southern influences and rustic touches. Each meal was a classic dish elevated to new heights. From fried green tomatoes to brioche pudding, every plate was simple, but elegant.
If all this look delicious, be sure to attend the next Chef’s Night on May 27th with Kevin Fonzo of K Restaurant. Go here to sign up for email updates.
