Special guest chef Vivian Howard of Chef and the Farmer and chef Keith Rhodes of Catch will headline an upcoming food lover’s extravaganza on the Cape Fear River.
Chef’s Feast on the River, 6-8 p.m. Oct. 19, will bring together renowned chefs from throughout the area at Pier 33 in for a culinary collaboration for a cause.
Howard and Rhodes will be joined by Dean Neff and Lydia Clopton of PinPoint, Ryan Andress of UNCW Catering, Craig Love of Surf House, Steve Harrington of Steviemack's International Food Company, Jameson Chavez of manna and Matt Register of Southern Smoke BBQ.
