VNA Celebrity Chef | Purchase Tickets

We are delighted to announce that Julian Barsotti, chef and owner of Dallas’ favorite restaurants Nonna, Carbone’s, Sprezza and Fachini, will be headlining the 11th Annual Celebrity Chef event on March 24th, benefiting the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA). 

Serving as Honorary Chairs are Shelly Hudson and Andrea Hagar of Food Company. As founders and co-owners of Food Company, a local custom catering company, they have been fiercely supportive of the Celebrity Chef event since its inception 10 years ago. And, how fortuitous that Shelly just happens to be Chef Julian’s mom! Great taste runs in the family.

Event chairs Julie and Eric Clark and Catherine and Will Rose are leading this effort and are strategically positioning the Celebrity Chef event to focus on support, promotion, and advocacy of VNA while keeping safety top of mind.

Our Cocktails in the Kitchen event, to be held March 23rd, pays homage to Venice, Italy, and the custom of andar a cicheti–the art of enjoying delicious bites made with exquisite ingredients.  Under Chef Barsotti’s trained Italian culinary hand, you’ll enjoy handpicked cichetis and Prosecco while participating in a Venetian-inspired cooking demonstration via Zoom.

Join our Chairs Flauren and Jason Bender and Louise and Charles Marsh and raise a glass to say “Salute”! Stay tuned for the full menu and for more information.
