−San Diego Chefs Salute Tommy Gomes2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
From event website:
Sometimes a purveyor is more than just somebody who sells you things. Sometimes a purveyor becomes something else. They become a trusted friend; a valued adviser; a fan; and a supporter of the community as a whole.
To the chefs in San Diego, Tommy Gomes is all of that and even more. Over the years he and his company, Catalina Offshore Products, have gone from being a fish monger to a true hub of the culinary community. While always offering a dazzling array of products, Tommy has also become the number one supporter of the culinary scene in San Diego and is an amazing supporter of the chefs and cooks who make it happen.
Please join us as we honor him in the best way possible with good people, good beverages and fantastic food.
Our chef line-up is truly an All Star team: Anthony Sinsay, Matthew Morrison, Matt Richman, Chad White, Tommy Fraioli, , Hanis Cavin, Matt Gordon, Alex Carballo, Jeff Bonilla, Rich Sweeney, Brandon Brooks, Steven Molina, Jenn Felmley, Daniel Barron, Karl Prohaska, Karen Blair, Trey, Amy DiBiase, Olivier Bioteau, Ryan Studebaker, Nate Soroko, Karrie Hills, and Tyson Blake.
Mike Hess Brewing and Societe Brewing will be on hand pouring their fantastic beers and Ian Ward, mixologist supreme, will be shaking up something special….
