The Chefs

Of course, the real stars of the event were the chefs and their devoted teams. Party guests were treated to an incredible array of culinary delights.

Chef Shachi Mehra

Born in India, Chef Shachi blends her native home’s flavors and textures with her new southern Californian home’s bounty of fresh, sustainable produce to create sensational interpretations of Indian street food, tandoori, and curries. Ingredients from local, organic farmers and growers combine with the spices and textures of Indian food to keep you coming back for more.

Chef Ernie Alvarado

Chef Ernie has learned from great chefs in southern California, but he attributes his love of food and success to the first person he knew for inventing incredible food in the kitchen, his mom. Teaming up with owner/restauranteur, Javier Cuadra, at URBANA is his latest culinary endeavor bringing his own twist to Mexican street food. In addition to the restaurant’s regular menu, Chef Ernie enjoys exploring local markets to find the freshest, most colorful ingredients to create specials that are original yet embody the soul of real food from Michoacán, Mexico.
