Bell + Whete Gastropub + Events is showcasing local chef talent via five upcoming chef pop up dinners, beginning tonight, in collaboration with Bell + Whete Executive Chef Jenny Izaguirre. Dinners will be held each Monday evening in February from 7:00-9:00 pm with the fifth and final dinner falling on leap year, Monday, February 29. Local chefs include Sabrina Brzusek from Dahlia Lounge and Dennis Johnston from Cantinetta who will showcase their skills and explore different cuisines during the series.

Bell + Whete welcomes Jenny Izaguirre (ease-uh-ghee-ray) as their new Executive Chef.

Jenny is replacing Stew Navarre, who will be focusing on sister restaurant Local 360, with occasional collaborations at Bell + Whete. On top of being a talented chef, Jenny has a dynamic, warm personality and a fierce passion for food. She hails from Honduras and is a CIA graduate with nearly 10 years under her belt at various Four Seasons properties around the country. She speaks fluent Spanish, English and basic French and Turkish. We had the pleasure to hang out with Jenny and try some of her dishes last week.
