Bill Kim Rallies Top Chefs to Support Indie Film Project

Urban Belly and Belly Shack chef/owner Bill Kim wants to cook for you at your home with a surprise guest chef ... if you help out his sister-in-law, Yasmina Cadiz, raise funds for an independent movie project.

Cadiz has a Kickstarter campaign to raise $18,000 by Nov. 18 for her Back 2 One Project, which will help her produce a film called The Avian Revolution, a live-action short film inspired by the work of spoken-word poet Gabriella Garcia Medina. If you pledge $10,000 you can get a private in-home dinner for you and nine friends cooked by Kim and a special surprise chef.

Kim posted a video featuring a bunch of his chef friends all claiming they'll be the surprise chef at the dinner party. Graham Elliot, who seems to be the video's spokesman, says, "We're going to take over your kitchen. It's going to be like Wrestlemania. We're going to be throwing pots and pans, arm wrestling, head butts. It's going to be so on like Donkey Kong. You're never gonna forget it."

Who might it be? Possibly one of the following:

· Graham Elliot
· Mindy Segal
· Mike Sheerin
· Rob & Allie Levitt
· Stephanie Izard
· Takashi Yagihashi
· Jason McLeod
· Giuseppe Tentori
· Chris Pandel
· Jimmy Bannos, Sr.
