Top Chef Season 2 semi-finalist coming to Herb & Wood


New York chef Sam Talbot (semi-finalist on Season 2 of Bravo’s Top Chef) will be coming to Herb & Wood in Little Italy to help launch chef Brian Malarkey’s Celebrity Chef Series.

The first in a series of guest chef dinners that will continue through next year, guests will be treated to fare prepared by chefs from New York, Los Angeles and beyond. Partnering with Chef’s Roll and Chef Works, the five-course menu features two courses each from chefs Malarkey and Talbot, tray-passed appetizers, dessert along with some family-style courses.

In addition to highlighting the San Diego culinary scene, there will be beverage pairings with each course along with a 15-minute demonstration by each chef.

The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and tickets are $150 per person. A percentage of the ticket sales will benefit Sam’s Beyond Type 1 Foundation. Tickets:
