[Okla. City, OK] —- Now celebrating it’s 15th year, the Oklahoma Restaurant Association’s Odyssey de Culinaire dinner events will take place this July, during which attendees will enjoy a five-course meal and an accompanying wine selection.

On Thursday, July 20, Tulsa chefs Ben Alexander, The Tavern; Miranda Kaiser, Laffa Medi-Eastern Restaurant & Bar; Kevin Kihle, The Renaissance Hotel; Erik Reynolds, SMOKE on Cherry Street; and Trey Winkle, R Bar will prepare a fabulous dining experience for attendees at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center.

One week later, on Thursday, July 27, Oklahoma City chefs Patrick Clark II, The Red Cup; Jonas Favela, Meat Market Refectory; Theron Jessop, The Artesian Hotel; Aaron Miles, The Skirvin Hilton; and Michael Paske, Boulevard Steakhouse will create amazing dishes for attendees at downtown OKC’s Skirvin Hilton Hotel.

The event’s lead coordinating chef is Mark Vannasdall of Traditions Spirits.

The chefs are paired in their course preparation with high school students who are currently active in ProStart® schools in Oklahoma. Funds raised from the event are used to to benefit the ORA’s Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation, which provides support to students, teachers, and schools who are involved in Student Programs. This support includes teacher training and development, materials and resources for student recruitment, assistance with job placement for internships, graduate employment, and industry-driven events for hospitality students.

A champagne reception will begin both evenings at 6:00 p.m. Dinner will follow at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are $125 per event, and there is a Full Table Discount in which you may purchase 7 seats and receive a complimentary 8th seat. Those wishing to attend may register online at www.okrestaurants.com or call (800) 375-8181. Seating is limited, so reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
