Chef Martinez of South Philly Barbacoa has a long list of accomplishments and accolades, most recently winning a James Beard Award. The dinner will be held at Chef Garces’ brand new food lab and private cooking studio.
Don’t miss bidding on “Being a Chef for the Day” at Forsythia where you will spend an afternoon in Forsythia’s kitchen with Chef Chris Kearse followed by dinner in the restaurant enjoying the food you prepared together. 

Thanks to the support of the community, the Garces Foundation has provided more than $350,000 worth of dental care to over 900 patients in 2021, and fed nearly 20,000 families since the start of the pandemic. Still there is so much more to do.
