Meet the Chef

Saturday, November 3, 2012, 4-5:30 p.m.
'New' Cebula Hall, Saint Martin’s University

Meet Guy Fieri at this special epicurean event, designed for a lucky limited audience. Is this “culinary rock star” as energetic and engaging in person as he is on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives? You bet!

Guests of Meet the Chef will be joining Guy Fieri for an entertaining afternoon of wine and hors d’oeuvres, inspired by Guy’s own recipes. Each guest will receive an autographed copy of Guy’s cookbook, Guy Fieri Food, and will have an opportunity to be photographed with the chef.

Meet the Chef benefits scholarship funds for Saint Martin’s University students.
