Gearing Up for Vetri's Great Chefs Event

Marc Vetri's annual Great Chefs Event is tomorrow, which means that lots of Philly chefs are hard at work putting the finishing touches on some truly insane charcuterie (that 200-pound mortadella will feed guests at the after party at Alla Spina) and other details — and that lots of big names from other cities are starting to arrive, dining around town, and posting teasers of what they'll serve at tomorrow's event. We've gathered together a few of our favorites below.

· Chicago chef Ryan Poli shared a group shot from one of the Vetri family's now-traditional Brazilian jiu jitsu workouts:


· Cleveland's Jonathon Sawyer (of the Greenhouse Tavern; seen above, far left in the back row) has been all over — posting pics from Percy Street Barbecue, Zahav, Fork, and Volver — and even offered a sneak peek of his dish for the main event:


· Looks like Craig Rogers of Border Springs Lamb Farm will be spit-roasting a pair of lambs with Tom Colicchio and Lauren Hirschberg of Craft in NYC:

· And the dudes from NYC's Big Gay Ice Cream have stocked up coolers full of rose-cardamom twist for the event:

The Great Chefs Event is sold out, but if you missed out on tickets, you can still bid on some pretty insane auction items — like having Brad Spence cook in your home or Bobby Flay cook for you at Vetri, or tagging along with Craig LaBan on a review dinner.
