Carnevino Chef Dinner with Shirley Chung

October 8, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


On Sunday, Oct. 8, Carnevino Italian Steakhouse will embark upon a culinary journey from Italy to China for a Marco Polo-inspired dining experience. Chef Shirley Chung and Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group’s Director of Operations, Pacific Zach Allen will co-host the next guest chef dinner. Both Chung and Allen were part of Carnevino’s original opening team in 2008.

Mirroring Marco Polo’s adventures from Italy to China, this dinner combines influences from Chinese and Italian cuisine. The multi-course menu features Asian-inspired comfort food such as scallion pancakes and duck wonton paired with traditional Italian items like carpaccio and Carta di Musica. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. and include cocktail and wine pairings.

Chef Chung currently owns Steamers Co. in Los Angeles and also serves as the chef/partner for Chung Lee Consulting in Las Vegas. She is also known for appearing during the 11th and 14th seasons of Bravo’s “Top Chef” where she placed in the top three on both seasons.
