In recent years, Cleveland has landed a firm spot on our nation’s map of cities with great restaurants. Through Food Network appearances by Chefs Michael Symon, Jonathon Sawyer, Chris Hodgson, Rocco Whalen, Kimberly McCune, and more, Cleveland is making its mark.
This summer, Chef Chris Hodgson is returning to the Food Network to compete to be The Next Food Network Star.
But, you don’t have to just turn on your TV to catch up with Chef Hodgson. From his restaurant to his food trucks, “Chef Hodge” is a familiar face around Cleveland. And he’ll be showing that familiar face in the VIP Room at one of Cleveland’s premier food events, the 19th Annual Silver Spoon Awards Party, happening Wednesday, May 15.
The Silver Spoon Awards Party is a strolling food and wine tasting event, featuring many of this year’s Cleveland Magazine’s Silver Spoon Awards winners, such as Deagan’s Kitchen and Bar, Chinato, Melt Bar and Grilled, and more.
Chef Hodgson will bring his comfort food with a twist and his Food-Network-ready personality to shine in the Silver Spoon VIP room, along with Spice Kitchen and Bar, Great Lakes Brewing, and Watershed Distillery. Having just been at Hodge’s this past weekend, I have to say that Chef Hodgson is creating some of the tastiest and most fun food in town.
The Silver Spoon Awards Party is sure to be a night you won’t want to miss! Plus, proceeds from the evening benefit the Arthritis Foundation, Great Lakes Region, Northeastern Ohio.
