Culinary Crossroads has collaborated with Paramount Schools of Excellence to create a monthly dinner series: Culinary Crossroads Supper Club presented by Paramount Schools.

At the height of the pandemic, Paramount CEO Tommy Reddicks and his late wife, Kelly Wensing, created a “Bring Back the Chefs” dinner series as a way to support the culinary community when so many restaurants had closed. Chefs cooked a six-course meal for an intimate group of diners with all funds raised going directly to the chefs.

That effort has now evolved into the Culinary Crossroads Supper Club, monthly Sunday evening dinners for 30 guests at Paramount’s Cottage Home campus. In addition to providing funds for the chefs, the series also benefits the Greg Hardesty Scholarship Fund.

Our Sunday suppers began in August 2021, continued through September 2022 and began again in Spring 2023. These limited seating dinners feature some of the city and state’s top chefs preparing fabulous six-course meals. The 2023 series culminates in an Oct. 1 chef cook-off as part of Paramount’s annual TURN Festival.
