Iron Chef Jose Garces announces a brand new line-up for his Chefs in Residency Program at Volvér on Kimmel Cultural Campus.
Garces kicks off season two for the program with Chef Ruben “Big Rube” Harley (Chef Big Rube’s Kitchen at Pitchers Pub) starting this week (September 21 thru November 13), and continues with Chef Chance Anies of Tabachoy, Chef Juan Lopez of On Point Bistro, Chef Tonii Hicks Private Chef and James Beard Fellow 2022, Chefs Ryan Elmore and Kaitlin Wines of Mom-Moms Kitchen, Owner Sally Song of Dim Sum Garden and one final chef to be announced for the season finale.
Through a special donation program in partnership with the Garces Foundation, each Chef in Residency will have the opportunity to raise money to support their work with their current restaurant, or to use for the start of their next culinary journey.
Chefs In Residency is Chef Garces’ way of taking the idea of featuring chefs at Volvér to the next level. “Chefs in Residency is back for a second year with a whole new line-up of fresh and talented faces and cooking styles,” said Garces. “As a Latin Chef and business owner, I’ve faced my share of adversity and am grateful to be in a place where I can ‘pay it forward’ to those emerging onto the Philadelphia food scene with ambitious goals of their own.”
Each Chef in Residency will showcase their top signature dishes on the Volvér menu for six to eight weeks, alongside Chef Garces’ brand new menu of Portuguese inspired dishes.
Chef Garces’ new Portuguese inspired dishes will include Fried Deviled Eggs, Short RIb Skewers, Crab Turnovers, Grilled Sea Bass, Spiced Roasted Chicken, Coffee Rubbed Sirloin, Duck Rice with Pepperoni, Port Custard, Arroz Doce and Poached Meringue.
