The Missouri School for the Deaf is cooking up something special for the community for international Deaf Awareness Week.
Among many other events for the school’s students and the surrounding community, MSD is hosting celebrity chef Kurt Ramborger in a cooking demonstration 7 p.m. Sept. 26 in Harrison Gym.
Known as the “Irish Chef,” Ramborger is Gallaudet University graduate and a partner in ViUDA Bistro and Arouse Your Palate Catering in Los Angeles. He is known for his appearance on the television program “Chopped.”
Ramborger will appear at the invitation of family friend and MSD teacher Jennifer Dignan.
“I got to thinking about having him come here because our Deaf Awareness Week this year was going to be huge, and we wanted to bring in a famous deaf person so our students can see that deaf people do get famous and lead successful lives,” Dignan said. “He is very excited about coming and repeatedly told me that our next generation of deaf means the world to him, and he wants to help them in any way he can.”
