The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) presents Culinary Cabaret on Friday, March 8, from 7-10 p.m. at Clarke, The Ultimate Kitchen Resource and Culinary Center, 393 Fortune Boulevard in Milford. The evening features inspired cuisine and creative cooking demonstrations by area chefs and culinarians, wine tastings, and entertainment by Electric Youth and FPAC special guest artists. Culinary Cabaret supports Electric Youth, an elite ensemble of talented singer-dancers, and their 2013 Asia Tour.
Culinary Cabaret 2013 marks the return of this signature event following a successful debut last year at Clarke. This year, FPAC is pleased to shine a light on the Franklin Food Pantry (FFP) at the Culinary Cabaret event and help launch the new Sponsor-a-Shelf program. The initiative promotes community involvement in meeting the needs of the Pantry's clients by enlisting the commitment of business and civic organizations to sponsor a shelf at the pantry and help stock particular items for a designated period of time.
This year's food and wine event will also showcase Celebrity Chef Christopher Nirschel, featured nationally on CNN, NBC, FOX, VH1 and The Food Network. Chef Nirschel competed on Season 7 of Food Network Star and has been featured in Food and Entertainment spotlights on Dr. Oz and Martha Stewart Radio, among others. His Culinary Bad Boy Productions offers catering services, cooking courses, and demonstrations. Chef Nirschel has worked with acclaimed chefs Bobby Flay, Alton Brown, Giada De Laurentiis, Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine, and Paula Dean. He has served as personal chef for Mr. Sean "Puffy" Combs.
