HLI FR 2019 w/ Chef Kwame Onwuachi, No Kings Collective & On Tap Magazine
You are cordially invited to join us for our best fundraiser yet on Thursday, November 21st, 2019!
This year, we honor Chef Kwame Onwuachi for his culinary and professional accomplishments and are proud to feature some of his signature dishes!
Chef Kwame Onwuachi is the James Beard Award-winning executive chef at Kith/Kin, author of Notes from a Young Black Chef, published by Alfred A. Knopf., and owner of Philly Wing Fry in Washington, D.C. He was born on Long Island and raised in New York City, Nigeria, and Louisiana. Onwuachi was first exposed to cooking by his mother, in the family’s modest Bronx apartment, and he took that spark of passion and turned it into a career. From toiling in the bowels of oil cleanup ships to working at some of the best restaurants in the world, he has seen and lived his fair share of diversity. Onwuachi trained at the Culinary Institute of America and has opened five restaurants before turning thirty. A former Bravo’s Top Chef contestant, he has been named one of Food & Wine‘s Best New Chefs and a 30 Under 30 honoree by both Zagat and Forbes.Get Tickets »
