New, 1 comment

Chef Dean Zanella was struck by tragedy. Not long after he took over the kitchen at Chicago Firehouse, Zanella's wife passed away from childbirth complications after giving birth to twin daughters.

A fundraiser is now set up. Benefit events, including a dinner at HotChocolate and an afterparty at Big Star on March 31, are on the docket. Notable chefs, including Bill Kim, Giuseppe Tentori, Takashi Yagihashi, Mindy Segal, and more are scheduled to cook. Call HotChocolate for details and reservations.
