Sushi Chef Dream Team brings together seven Seattle sushi stars for a benefit to raise funds for Japan.

With aftershocks still rocking Japan nearly a month after the devastating quake and tsunami this March, benefits continue to pop up around Seattle.

And this one—it must be said—sounds incredible. Seven of our best sushi chefs are collaborating on a feast to be served with wine and sake at Bell Harbor Pier 66 on Thursday, May 5. It’s called Sushi Chef Dream Team, and it really is just that.

Behold who is participating:
Taichi Kitamura (Sushi Kappo Tamura), Hiro Kirita (Chiso), Shiro Kashiba (Shiro’s Sushi Restaurant), Ryuichi Nakano (Kisaku), Hideaki Taneda (I Love Sushi in Lake Union), Billy Beach (Japonessa), and Yoshiaki Nishizawa (Shūn).

Oh and then, Hiroki Inoue from Setsuko Pastry and Fumie’s Gold is doing dessert.

On top of that, three other local chefs will be making dishes: Campagne’s Daisley Gordon, Tamara Murphy of Elliott Bay Café, and Seth Caswell from Emmer and Rye.

Proceeds will go to Peace Winds America and Peace Winds Japan, organizations providing humanitarian relief in Japan.

If you want to meet all the chefs and get a photo with them, opt for the the $200 early-admission ticket and show up at 5pm. GA tickets are $175 and let you in beginning at 6:30. Purchase here.
