 Five Local Chefs at Molinari’s: It’s More Than Just Popcorn

Fourth Annual SouthSide Film Festival Fundraiser

For the fourth year in a row, Molinari’s is hosting an evening of gastronomical delights as five local chefs work together to bring diners a unique experience. The evening begins with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres prepared by all the chefs at 6 p.m. Monday, June 13 at Molinari’s, 322 E. Third St., Bethlehem.

Participating chefs this year are Stephen Yeager, executive chef, Ye Olde Limeport Inn and The Jamison Publick House; Tim Widrick, executive chef, Edge Restaurant; Dom Lombardo, owner/executive chef, TheMINT Gastropub; Stacey Emenecker, bakery manager, Vegan Treats; and Geo Dodig, executive chef, Molinari’s.

In addition to hors d’oeuvres, the chefs each prepare one course. Lee Minnucci, general manager/certified sommelier at Molinari’s will pair each course with a wine from South Italy Imports, which also generously donates the wine.

Tickets are $125 per person, including tax and gratuity. Half of the ticket goes directly to the SouthSide Film Festival.
