For the past 6 years, Chefdance has brought a star lineup of chefs to cook for the celebrities and film-makers at the festival. This year, Kate Bosworth, Steve Buscemi, and James Franco are just a few of the celebrities taking advantage of the chance to taste food from famous chefs like Brian Malarkey (Top Chef, Season 3) and Kerry Simon (Palms Palace in Las Vegas).

The dinner series lasts for 5 nights, giving each chef a chance to showcase their talents in a four course meal for 250 people. The event’s creator, Kenny Griswold, designed Chefdance as a culinary compliment to the films, and no doubt also to take advantage of the brief but considerable concentration of artistic talent and international fame that descends upon Park City, UT each winter.
