Suvir Saran, is the Festival Honorary Chef. Chef Saran will be signing copies of his James Beard Award nominated book Masala Farm at a VIP reception on Friday, January 18th. Not only has Chef Saran earned a prestigious Michelin Star, he was an absolute breakout star on season 3 of Bravo's Top Chef Masters. To support the live auction at the Grand Gala, Chef Saran has generously donated a 4 course dinner, plus dessert and wine for 8 people at his beautiful American Masala Farm in Washington County (Upstate NY).
Yours truly will be at the Albany Chefs' Food & Wine Festival and I'm really looking forward to tasting the delicious creations that the Capital City chefs will cook up!

An All-Access VIP Pass is $900 and includes 2 tickets to ALL events and a copy of Chef Saran's book.
