Cleaver & Cork

2022 NEW event – Chef’s Table in October

Cleaver and Cork is Tallahassee Community College Foundation’s signature event. This year we are adding a special event in October, hosted by a local couple in their beautifully appointed home.  This special event is limited to just 50 people.  

Our inaugural Chef’s Table Dinner will feature the culinary talents of Chef Marc Murphy. 

Ask Chef Marc Murphy where he grew up and he’ll fire off a list of cosmopolitan destinations — Milan, Paris, Villefranche, Washington DC, Rome and Genoa — “and that’s before I turned 12,” he’ll explain. This dizzying list of hometowns served as an excellent education in French and Italian cuisine, though as a teenager this was not his first passion. When the reality hit that he didn’t have the funds to become a professional racecar driver, Murphy followed his brother to the Institute of Culinary Education. 

In March 2004, Murphy opened his first solo enterprise with Landmarc [Tribeca], which won rave reviews both for its eclectic French and Italian menu as well as its highly untraditional wine list. Following its success, Murphy opened Ditch Plains in the West Village in 2006. In 2007, Murphy was given the opportunity to open another Landmarc restaurant in the presti­gious Time Warner Center In addition to restaurants, Murphy headed up the company’s catering division, Benchmarc Events by Marc Murphy. 

Today, Murphy’s involvement in the industry moves beyond restaurants, with a regular role as a judge on Food Network’s highest rated hits, CHOPPED and CHOPPED JUNIOR as well as appearances on CHOPPED AFTER HOURS, GUY’S RANCH KITCHEN, GUYS’S GROCERY GAMES, BEAT BOBBY FLAY, WORST COOKS IN AMERICA, THE KITCHEN, THE BEST THING I EVER ATE, THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, THE TODAY SHOW and HSN among others. 

Chef Murphy is the author of Season with Authority: Confident Home Cooking his top selling cookbook and in 2019 launched his hosting duties with his debut podcast, Food 360 with Marc Murphy produced by iHeartRadio. 

We are excited to host Chef Murphy for this inaugural event….and look forward to experiencing the menu he curates.  Pair ed with exceptional wine pairing – this is an evening not to be missed!
