House Works: Chef's Table

In this House Works, we learn about the concept of a "Chef's Table" and how you can take part.

Going out to eat is a treat. You sit down, relax and the food is served to you. Well, what if the chef came with that order? That's kind of what the Chef's Table is all about.

Chef Judy Gilliard thinks it's really exciting to showcase chefs because usually you never get to see them. Chefs are in the back of the kitchen.

But when you go to major cities like Chicago, you can book a chef's table at a place like Charlie Trotter's and sit around his table as he prepares a meal for you.

This is the perfect platform to let the chefs tell you about their philosophy, their cooking style and how they incorporate fresh, ingredients.

The Chef's Table happens on the second Monday of every month at Art and Soul in Lincoln. You gather around a big table and chefs like Brandon Harpster from Single Barrel talk about the food.

Brandon supports local producers like TD Niche. They are raising pork outdoors, and Brandon believes the breeds TD Niche uses produce better pork.

Six chefs are lined up for the Chefs Table through January. And those involved with the event hope the public really likes the concept.

So if you're a foodie, or just want to try something new, think about pulling up a chair to the Chef's Table.
