Chef Dave Martin of “Top Chef” fame will be appearing at the Newport Beach Central Library in October, and you can be one of the first fans to register to see him by attending the July 20 “What’s Cooking At the Library” event, organizers said.
Orange County Register food writer and chef Cathy Thomas will appear at the July 20 event, and she’ll be focusing on summer produce as she whips up summer salads and fruit desserts. Thomas is the author of two cookbooks, including a book published this spring in conjunction with Melissa’s Produce, “Melissa’s Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce.”
Chef Martin’s appearance is scheduled for Oct. 19. He is well known from his appearance in the first season of the Bravo show “Top Chef.”
The library is located at 1000 Avocado Ave.
The event costs $20 (and includes samples), and you must be 21 or older to attend, according to the library’s website. The site also gives information on how to register.
