Zurawik: Oprah soars in HBO's 'Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks'

James Beard hits the road

The James Beard Foundation's Celebrity Chef Tour pulls into the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace on Thursday night. Tickets for the multi-course dinner are $140, and proceeds benefit the James Beard Foundation. The host chef for the event is Watertable's executive chef, Sean Curry.

The Celebrity Chef Tour is like a modern day Circuit Chautauqua for food-lovers, a way of exporting the James Beard House experience outside of New York City.  The Beard House dining room is seen in the photo at left.

Guest chefs include:

-- Marc Murphy (owner, Benchmark Restaurants, NYC), who has guest-judged on "Chopped" and "Iron Chef America"

-- Jennifer Carroll (chef de cuisine, 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge, Philadelphia), a sixth-edition "Top Chef" finalist

-- Marc Anthony Bynum (executive chef, Venue 56, Hauppage, NY), a "Chopped" winner, now appearing on "Chopped Champions"

-- Amanda Cook, a recent nominee for James Beard Award for outstanding pastry chef

There is still room for you. For additional information or to purchase tickets, go to this website.
