Some of North Carolina’s star chefs are banding together in Raleigh to present a twelve-course Japanese-inspired dinner fit for a king. And best of all, you could have a chance to participate in the epic feast.

Named “Rising Sun” by the Blind Pig Supper Club, the dinner will take place on August 9 in Raleigh. Triangle-area chefs including Standard Food’s Scott Crawford (previously of Heron’s), Seaboard 18’s Jason Smith, Stanbury’s Drew Maykuth (previously of The Admiral in Asheville) and, along with Hickory and Asheville chefs Kyle McKnight and Brian Canipelli, will execute their interpretation, both traditional and modern, of Japanese cuisine.

Raleigh’s “Rising Sun” dinner will be a reunion for chefs Drew Maykuth and Brian Canipelli, whom both collaborated in 2012 for the first “Rising Sun” dinner in Asheville back in 2012.

The Blind Pig Supper Club, based in Asheville, is an organization created to fuse and showcase the talents of local artists, musicians and those in the culinary community. Blind Pig also supports local charitable organizations with each culinary event that is hosted. Proceeds from Raleigh’s “Rising Sun” dinner will benefit the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation.

Tickets to Blind Pig Supper Club events sell out quickly. Each seat to the special dinner will cost $90 (does not include fees). You can purchase them here. The dinner will take place on August 9 from 5 p.m. until 9:30 p.m..
