Please join Seattle’s restaurant community to show support for Chef Matt Farrer with Breaking Bread, a benefit dinner at Canlis Restaurant on Sunday, January 27 at 6:00pm.
Matt Farrer, a much-loved figure in the Seattle restaurant scene and chef at Restaurant Zoe, is facing a difficult battle with cancer. Farrer is revered by many not only for his cooking skill but also for his infectious enthusiasm and positive energy. Many of Farrer’s friends, present and former colleagues, chefs, and restaurant owners – including Brian and Mark Canlis and Scott Staples – have joined forces to hold this benefit dinner and after-party to help raise funds for his medical care.
“Breaking Bread” will feature a special five-course tasting menu prepared by Seattle chefs that Farrer has worked with in the past, including: Jason Franey of Canlis Restaurant; James Sherrill of Restaurant Zoe; Jason Wilson of Crush; Bill Morris of the Rainier Club, and Blaine Wetzel of Willows Inn. The all-inclusive dinner also includes a wine flight designed by Canlis sommeliers Nelson Daquip and Phillip Dunn.
In addition to the dinner, there will be a public after-party at 1927 Events from 9pm-2am, with a $20 entrance donation.
Dinner R.S.V.P’s can be made by calling (206) 298-9550.
