Eater Chicago announced this Thursday exciting additions to the Chefs’ Playground Chef List, headlined by Top Chef winner and Stephanie Izard of Girl and the Goat and Little Goat and Mindy Segal, from Chicago sweets staple Hot Chocolate. Izard and Segal are not unfamiliar with the Academy for Global Citizenship, having participated in one of our first chef events in 2010, an intimate “Global Grazing” dinner held in our own schoolyard. Chefs Playground 2014 participants Chris Pandel, Paul Kahan and Giuseppe Tentori also participated in that event. We are so thrilled to have Chefs Izard and Segal participating in our second annual Chefs’ Playground gala alongside 16 of their peers in Chicago’s fine dining scene, including two celebrated mixologists. Tickets ($225 GA, $350 VIP) and additional information are available at http://www.agcchicago.org/chefsplayground. Secure your place at the table today, as tickets will become scarce as we approach May 15th.
