GREAT LAKES SCIENCE CENTER TO HOST FUNDRAISING EVENT WITH RENOWNED CLEVELAND CHEF
Steve Schimoler of crop bistro & bar will take VIP guests on an epicurean journey of food science
August 13th, 2012
CLEVELAND (August 13, 2012) – Great Lakes Science Center, home of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, will host a tasteful journey of flavor on Monday, August 27, from 7:30 to 9:30 pm, with “The Fusion of Food and Science,” an exclusive, intimate evening with Cleveland’s own chef, Steve Schimoler.
Chef Steve, a world-famous chef who owns crop bistro & bar in Ohio City, has been featured on Food Nation and PBS MasterChef series. He will bring his culinary artistry and food science expertise to the Science Center and show guests, via science experiments, how removing fat from foods has a greater benefit than just supporting a healthy lifestyle – it actually allows us to experience more flavors than we would with foods containing a higher fat content.
“Between our passion for science and Chef Steve’s creative passion for food, we thought a fusion event would be a unique way to bridge the two concepts together and provide guests an exclusive experience,” said Laura Rayburn, vice president of development, Great Lakes Science Center. “This type of event allows us to closely engage with our adult audience and gives them an opportunity to learn a bit more about science in an enjoyable manner – through food!”
More than 125 VIP guests are attending the fundraising event, all of which are from prominent Cleveland businesses, including Sherwin-Williams, Cliffs Natural Resources, Ernst & Young, Interlake Steamship, Medical Mutual of Ohio, PricewaterhouseCoopers and University Hospitals.
Media is invited to attend. This fundraising event is not open to the public.
• Guests enjoying appitinis – a creative fusion of a food appetizer and a martini – and heavy hors d’oeuvres designed by crop bistro & bar
• Interactive food science experiments for every guest to attempt at their tables, with instruction from Chef Steve
• An up-close look at Chef Steve’s live cooking demonstration as he makes a crème en glace dessert for guests to sample
• VIP guests mingling with Chef Steve, asking questions, learning insights into his dessert recipe, etc.
This event is expected to raise $35,000 to support Great Lakes Science Center’s mission to engage visitors through fun, interactive experiences that stimulate curiosity about and encourage understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
