Slow Food Austin presents this collaborative dinner with star Junior Chefs from Patricia’s Table. Each Junior Chef will be paired with a professional chef to create this locally-sourced, seasonal, four-course meal.

Jack Crabb is 13 years old and loves to cook and has been cooking since he was 3 years old. He recently won Chopped Junior on Food Network and says “having fun in the kitchen is not just for adults!” Jack will be working with Chef Jesse DeLeon from Victoria Provisions who has over 14 years of culinary experience and has balanced a variety of tastes and cooking styles, from the nouveau classics to authentic regional Italian cuisine.
Alex Alcorta is 11 years old and was on the Kids Baking Championship on Food Network. He is a talented baker and entrepreneur and enjoys making handmade pasta and teaching others how to cook. Alex will cook with Chef Amber Antonelli of The Naked Bite who offers cooking classes, catering, and personal chef services to connect people with dynamic, conscious cuisine that is unique and celebrates plants as the best thing on your plate.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see these Junior Chefs in action and enjoy an early fall, Slow Food meal. Guests are invited to bring their own wine.

Thank you to Wheatsville Co-opWhole Foods Market, and Patricia’s Table for sponsoring this event.
