One of the season’s most anticipated culinary events is set to take place on Sept. 29 in the home of Larry and Deana Blackburn, where four globally-renowned chefs will converge for a dinner extraordinaire benefitting the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Foundation. Chefs Jérôme Bocuse, Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller (shown in the photo left-to-right) are joined by the Bocuse d'Or Foundation USA Representative for the 2013 World Food Competition Richard Rosendale, as the grand masters of a seated, multi-course dinner for 150 guests. The three formers headed a similar event two years ago in New Orleans that was later nicknamed the “Dinner of a Decade” by local food writers.

“This is truly the dining experience of a lifetime,” said Event Chairperson Deana Blackburn. “Rarely are such powerful forces of the culinary world joined together at the same time, in the same place. We are truly honored to have them.” The weekend’s festivities kick off at an exclusive champagne reception on the eve of the dinner, where guests and members of the media can meet and mingle with the culinary quartet. The main event commences with an open-air cocktail hour, during which guests will have a chance to observe the artists at work in the Blackburns’ private kitchen. Afterward, guests are treated to a dinner menu crafted by all four chefs collaboratively and accompanied by expertly selected wine pairings. A photo-op and post-dinner cordials bring the evening to a close. Tickets and corporate sponsorships are available through the HCSOF website,, and individual tickets start at $2,500.
