Just as food critic Max Jacobson is getting ready to return from Omaha, where's he's been rehabilitating from a terrible accident on Dec. 23, comes another Chefs to the Max benefit dinner to help out with expenses the family has incurred.
Kerry Simon's new Carson Kitchen hosts the Sunday Supper from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28. The event features off-Strip chefs in a dine around, and 100 percent of $75 per person ticket sales go to Jacobson, who may be at the event.
Some of the chefs on board include Vic "Vegas" Moea of V's Café; Luciano Pellegrini and José Aleman of Marche Bacchus French Bistro & Wine Shop; Ming See Woo of Fú Asian Kitchen at the Hard Rock Hotel; Paloma Cuellar of La Comida; and Chris Palmeri of Naked City Pizza and Desnudo Tacos; and O Face Doughnuts. Southern Wine & Spirits sponsors the event.
Jacobson suffered traumatic brain injuries when he was struck by a car on Dec. 23 of last year while walking home from the gym. Since April, he has been undergoing rehabilitation in Denver and Omaha, where he has seen tremendous improvements. Jacobson is currently walking and dining out once again and his speech continues to improve.
