Chefs Kristina Zhao and Ceasar Zepeda will partner up for the second event in a six-week Chef Swap collaborative dinner series celebrating San Antonio culinary pros.

A portion of proceeds from each Chef Swap dinner will be donated to restaurant-focused nonprofit Culinaria to support its mission of funding scholarships for local residents trying to further their culinary educations.

Zepeda, head honcho at Sangria on the Burg, will welcome Zhao — of Sichuan House and upcoming eatery Dashi Sichuan Kitchen & Bar — into his Northwest SA kitchen for their four-course collaborative dinner on June 28.

Menu items include tea-smoked duck, achiote-marinated pork and a main event which promises pork belly two ways. Ticketholders can expect Zepeda’s Smoked Pork Belly with pepita-jalapeno salsa, mango pico de gallo and cotija cheese and Sichuan House’s Dong Po-Braised Pork Belly with broccolini and a sweet soy glaze.

Each course will be paired with a cocktail that complements the flavors of the dish.

Tickets for the June 28 dinner — which will offer two seating times, at 6 p.m. at 8 p.m. — cost $95 per person. Reservations are required, and those interested in booking seats may do so by calling Sangria on the Burg directly.
