Chef Dinteman’s menu will be served from 4 to 10 p.m.  The regular menu will be available as well. 

The Candlewyck Inn hosts a celebrity chef night the last Saturday of every month.  “The idea actually came from my wife, Sharon,” said Candlewyck owner, Fred Engle, “It began one and a half years ago with friends wanting to cook on certain nights and quickly evolved into a night that diners really enjoy and look forward to.”  

The celebrity chef creates a menu and also selects a charity or non-profit group to receive a portion of the proceeds from that night. “We’ve donated more than $6000 to local charities during this time.  Celebrity Chef Night is turning out to be a Candlewyck tradition – one you should join us in celebrating,” added Engle.
