If you watched Top Chef: Miami (season 3), you may remember Bend native Brian Malarkey steaming up the Miami location with his porkpie hats, huge smile and cooking skills, inspired by the Oregon countryside. Although he lost to Vietnamese-American cooking genius Hung, Malarkey has been doing pretty well for himself, having recently opened his own restaurant, Searsucker, in San Diego.
You can catch Malarkey in person next Wednesday when he cooks diabetic-friendly recipes at Community Leaders' Summit on Diabetes at the Riverhouse Convention Center. Whether you're a diabetic, seeking information on preventing the disease or just a Top Chef superfan, you won't want to miss Wednesday's event. The summit is free and so are samples of Malarkey's food! There's only one thing to say: please pack your knives and go.
Community Leaders' Summit on Dibetes, Wednesay, Sept. 29. 4pm, Riverhouse Convention Center, 3075 N. Business 97.
