Catering chefs and their teams are often the unsung heroes of the culinary world. Matt and Ted Lee take you behind-the-scenes to show the challenges, perseverance, integrity, and work ethic necessary to achieve excellence. – Drew Nieporent, restaurateur: Nobu, Bâtard, Tribeca Grill
Bestselling authors and Southern cooking gurus, Matt and Ted Lee talk with culinary expert Gail Simmons about the competitive, wild world of high-end catering, exposing the secrets of a food business few home cooks or restaurant chefs ever experience. Known for their modern take on Southern cooking, the Lee brothers steeped themselves in the catering business for four years, learning the culture from the inside-out. They share stories of eccentric characters, extreme conditions, and the improvisation that happens to produce magical events. A book signing follows the event.
