19th Annual Master Chef Dinner


When it comes to a wonderful evening and a great fund-raiser for the SPKF the main event is our Master Chef Dinner. Held on November 5, 2012 this year's event was located at the Texas Tech Merket Alumni Center. The featured chef this year was Todd Kelly, executive chef at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Kelly was named the American Culinary Federation's Chef of the Year in 2011. Accompanying Kelly was Megan Ketover, 2009 American Culinary Federation Northeast Region Pastry Chef of the Year. A demo and reception was held on November 4th at CityBank.
