Second Harvest chef's night

As part of the hugely popular guest chef series at Second Harvest, two chefs from the Grand Lakes property will cook up a feast on Thursday, September, 24.

This installment of the Chef’s Night series will give Chef Nathan Hardin, chef de cuisine of Highball & Harvest at the Ritz Carlton, and Chef Jaden Sheive, executive chef for Whisper Creek Farm: The Kitchen at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes, the opportunity to prepare dinner inside the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s Community Kitchen.

Together, Chef Hardin and Chef Jaden have designed a fusion menu from both restaurants for guests to enjoy. The menu will feature a four-course dinner along with a specialty cocktail, wine and hand-crafted beer.


Chef’s Night brings local top chefs into Second Harvest’s Community Kitchen to celebrate delicious food and raise money for a good cause. All proceeds benefit Second Harvest’s Culinary Training Program, which provides students with the skills and inspiration they need to obtain an entry-level position in a food service establishment.
