Beckett will be teaming up with Maneet Chauhan, the James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef and judge on Food Network's popular show Chopped, at his East Phoenix restaurant, Beckett's Table, for a special multi-course dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 30.

Oh, and wear something nice if you go. A film crew will be shooting a food show that evening as well.

The meal will feature an entree and cocktail created by Chauhan, an appetizer and dessert from Beckett, and wine pairings.

The cost of the multi-course dinner will be $95, and that includes a copy of Chauhan's newly released cookbook, Flavors of My World, which Chauhan will be signing.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 602-954-1700.

And because the taping of a new food show will be in progress that evening, all diners at Beckett's Table that night will be required to sign a waiver. Welcome to the world of celebrity.
