BIRMINGHAM – Some of the state’s most celebrated chefs will gather for The Children’s Table, a culinary event to benefit patients at Children’s of Alabama, the state’s only freestanding pediatric hospital.

Guests will enjoy signature dishes, desserts and drinks on Saturday, March 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Meredith Food Studios (4100 Old Montgomery Highway, Birmingham, 35209). Individual tickets are $150 and $275 per couple and are available at TheChildrensTable.org.

The partner chefs were recruited by the editors of Food & Wine and Southern Living magazines. The Children’s Table features Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot Fish Club and Ovenbird Restaurant; Bill Briand of Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina; Leonardo Maurelli III of The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center; Rob McDaniel of SpringHouse; Geri-Martha O’Hara of Big Spoon Creamery; Mauricio Papapietro of brick & tin; Abhi Sainju of Abhi Eatery + Bar and Mo:Mo; and Ben Vaughn of Root to Tail.

Guests will have an opportunity to go behind the scenes in the Meredith Food Studios featuring 28 test kitchens, 13 photo and video studios, a prop and styling studio and an expansive showcase kitchen and tasting room.

The event will raise funds for and awareness of the nutritional needs of patients at Children’s of Alabama. Many patients at Children’s have uniquely restricted diets requiring them to learn everything about the food they eat, and many end up developing a strong passion for learning to cook and experiment with recipes. Proceeds from this event will help Children’s assist families in meeting their dietary restrictions and encourage every child’s passion for nutrition.

The Children’s Table is presented by Alabama Power.
