Jennie Lorenzo, Executive Chef of famed Fifth Floor Restaurant, and Jamie Lauren, acclaimed Executive Chef at San Francisco's Absinthe Brasserie will each create a special course for the evening's collaborative 4 course dinner. Wine pairings from select premier winemakers will be included.
Guest Chef Jennie Lorenzo has achieved critical acclaim at the Michelin-rated Fifth Floor Restaurant, located in the Palomar Hotel in San Francisco. Born and raised in Manila, Lorenzo traveled the globe to work with some of the world's top chefs including Marco Pierre White at the Mirabelle and the three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, and with Roland Passot at La Folie and Laurent Gras at Fifth Floor in San Francisco. She assisted in the opening of AME at the St. Regis in San Francisco with Lissa Doumani and Hiro Sone before jetting off to Tokyo to work at the Michelin two-star Ryugin. Back now at Fifth Floor as Executive Chef, Lorenzo works with Culinary Director Laurent Manrique to transform their vision of Gascony cuisine into exceptional and memorable dining experiences.
Absinthe Executive Chef Jamie Lauren's affinity for bright and flavorful cuisine originated as a child at some of Manhattan's best neighborhood restaurants. An honors graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Lauren has had the opportunity to work with many celebrity chefs, including Anita Lo of Annisa in New York City, Lance Dean Velasquez of Bendean in Berkeley, and Jean-Michel Bouvier from L'Essential in Chambeery, France.
She rose to become one of San Francisco Chronicle's "Rising-Star Chefs" in 2005, assuming the Executive Chef position at Absinthe in July 2007. Best described as American-influenced French and Northern Italian, Lauren's menus at Absinthe echo her commitment to organic, locally grown, seasonal ingredients. She was named as Restaurant Hospitality Magazine's "Rising Star Chef 2008" and competed on Bravo's award-winning show "Top Chef" in 2009.
