Chefs E. Michael Reidt of Area 31, Sean Brasel of Meat Market, and Kris Wessel of Red Light are teaming up next week to raise money for Common Threads, an organization that teaches low-income children how to cook and eat healthy.

The three chefs will prepare a five-course meal at Area 31 on Tuesday, July 19. Dishes include Reidt's "foie gras fluff" with smoked peaches, basil sponge, pineapple and tamarind gastrique; and Florida black bass with eggplant, oxtail and a foie gras emulsion. The cost of the dinner is $75 including wine pairings and all proceeds go to Common Threads. Buy tickets here.

Following the kick-off event, Area 31 will continue to offer a five-course tasting menu nightly to raise money for the organization. The cost per person will be $60 or $95 with wine pairings. Area 31 will donate $5 of each tasting menu sold to Common Threads.

Aren't most children "low income children"?  I kid, Paula, I kid!  Thanks for the post on Common Threads, it's going to be a great evening.
