The Summit to host ‘1 Night, 2 Chefs’ event on February 26
February 18, 2010
Jean-Robert de Cavel will be in the kitchen this month as The Summit restaurant continues its “1 Night, 2 Chefs’’ feature.
On Friday, Feb. 26, de Cavel – who is currently Chef in Residence at the Midwest Culinary Institute, which houses The Summit – will join The Summit’s chef de cuisine, Matt Winterrowd. In addition to the regular Summit menu, guests will be able to choose a first and/or second course prepared by de Cavel.
Jean-Robert is one of the best known chefs in Greater Cincinnati. Born in Roubaix, France, he worked under Master Chef Jo Rostang in the French Riviera and the British West Indies until, at age 26, he was named Executive Chef at La Regence restaurant at the Hotel Plaza Athenee in New York City.
In 1993, after eight years in New York, Jean-Robert moved to Cincinnati to serve as chef de cuisine at the Maisonette, at the time the longest-running Mobil five-star restaurant in the United States. Under his tenure the Maisonette earned eight additional five-star Mobil ratings. Jean-Robert left the Maisonette in 2001 – four years before it closed – to open his own restaurant, Jean-Robert at Pigall’s, which was subsequently named by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the Top 75 new restaurants in the world.
The Summit is a fine-dining restaurant featuring the culinary and pastry students at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., it offers fabulous meals in an elegant setting.
