Indie Chefs Week SoCal

Indie Chefs Week SoCal


Chef Trey Foshee and his team recently traveled to Costa Mesa, California to take part in Indie Chefs Week, a three-day chefs festival aimed at celebrating and encouraging culinary collaboration.

Each night, chefs from all over North America came together to create unique, new dishes. The first two nights, twelve chefs each presented one dish in a 12-course menu. Then, on the last night, attendees enjoyed a 20+ course food extravaganza prepared by over 20 chefs. The event was a first for the popular series—founded by Foreign & Domestic Chef/Owner, Ned Elliot—having never taken place in Southern California previously.

Take a look at some pictures and a video of the event below. Also, check out other collaborative dinners Chef Trey and his team have participated in including Foreign & Domestic’s popular Indie Chefs Table series in Austin, Texas and the annual ECOLIFE Gala.
