The event will be a one-of-a-kind experience for diners, as Sternberg has collected a grouping of chefs to create an 8-course meal that highlights the best of the Midwest.
The evening will begin with a cocktail hour, and if you've ever had Cerulean's cocktails you know that is already going to be a treat.
Then, it will be time for the meal which is to be prepared by a few of the best chefs in the Midwest: Alan Sternberg
Downtown, Kevin Ashworth from 610 Magnolia in Louisville
, Ryan Santos from Please in Cincinnati
and rounded out by one of the most highly praised dessert chefs in the country, Cerulean's Peter Schmutte
Many of the dishes will be expertly paired with a glass of wine, these are part of the ticket
price. But, there will be a cash bar available for those that wish to have a little more to imbibe.
One look at the menu below and you can see it's bound to be an incredible meal and the best part is by enjoying the best food in the Midwest, you are giving back to the James Beard Foundations scholarship program. It's a win (Indy), win (Cerulean), win (JBF), win (You) situation.
Cerulean is hosting the first ever James Beard Foundation dinner in Indianapolis on October 17. This is a huge step for the city in the realm of nationwide (and worldwide) dining scene acclaim. In case you are unfamiliar with the James Beard Foundation, this would be like presenting your film to the Academy. It is also a way Alan Sternberg and the team at Cerulean are helping fund James Beard Foundation scholarships, which "provide support to aspiring students in multiple areas of food and culinary studies."
