Chefs Stephen Yen of Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill, Patrice Vassell of CUT NYC, Ash Fulk of Hill Country Barbecue Market, and Gabriel Dudley of Gauchonfire highlight the diversity of the Autumn season with flavors and spices influenced by their own kitchens. Open fire dishes and demos may include:

Salt-Baked Whole Fish

Each chef’s demo is approximately 20 minutes and is part of the cook for that evening's supper, so guests will have an opportunity to watch the whole process from fire to fork!
