Top Chef and Top Gooner!

Acclaimed American chef, Richard Blais, known in part for his appearances on Top Chef and Iron Chef America, rolled into the Bay Area this weekend, announcing his impending arrival on Twitter.

Chef Blais was the star attraction at Peaches and Tango: A Dinner in the Orchard, cooking a multi-course dinner for 175+ guests in Brentwood.

Attendees paid $200 a ticket for the event at Frog Hollow Farm, with proceeds benefiting The Edible Schoolyard,  a program of the Chez Panisse Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by chef and author Alice Waters.

Chef Blais is a huge Arsenal FC supporter, and is often be seen on his television appearances wearing t-shirts displaying his support.  Sure, enough when he arrived, he was sporting the finest in local Gooner apparel.

Chef Richard Blais, True Gooner!
