Reservations are being accepted for a one-year anniversary party at TerraMae Appalachian Bistro that will bring together six chefs from the region. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Siskin Children's Institute.

Set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, the event is hosted by TerraMae’s executive chef, Shelley Cooper, whose zest for Appalachian cooking with a flair has taken her all over the world. She trained under noted Southern chef Louis Osteen and has worked in cities ranging from Los Angeles to Memphis to Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

In her approach to food, Cooper gives old recipes a contemporary twist. Humble fare such as frog legs or chowchow may wind up on a menu with nontraditional pairings such as scallops and Shell Point oysters.

Her guests next Thursday include four chefs with whom she has worked: Bruce Lafone and John Campbell of Asheville, N.C., and Kyle Woodruff and Emily Clary Woodruff of Williamsburg, Va. Also taking part is chef Rebecca Barron of St. John’s Restaurant.

Each chef will have a chef’s table with food and drinks for guests to sample. They will be accompanied by musical performers who represent the personality of each chef’s region.

Admission is $115, with $50 from each ticket, as well as proceeds from a silent auction, going to Siskin.
