Writer, director and producer Christopher Coppola, known to many as the “Biker Chef”, will be hosting an intimate culinary experience during the Waterfront Film Festival. The Biker Chef Culinary Experience is a fundraiser for the Waterfront Film Festival and Project Accessible Hollywood, Coppola’s worldwide effort to expand expression through filmmaking.
Coppola will do a cooking demonstration, share culinary samples paired with a wine tasting from the Coppola Winery, sign autographs, and share his insights of the history of the Coppola family. Coppola’s TV pilot “Biker Chef” will screen at the event, with the filmmaker and “Biker Cat” in attendance. Coppola and his goggle-clad black feline will be in town for Festival week and are likely to be seen cruising Water Street on a motorcycle provided by DV8 Cycles.
"Cooking is the greatest act of love that you can do for your fellow human being, and I look forward to sharing that with the people of Saugatuck,” expressed Coppola, nephew to legendary director Francis Ford Coppola and brother to actor Nicholas Cage.
Exclusive access tickets are $35, and seating is limited to 100 attendees. The event will be 2 p.m. Sunday June 17 at the White House Bistro. Advance ticket purchase is required. [$35]
