This weekend, some of Philly’s best chefs will be part of the 75-chef culinary extravaganza “Meals from the Masters,” a fundraising event benefitting Meals On Wheels Delaware. Now in its fifteenth year, the weekend will include three all-star events: Evening with the Masters, Cellar Masters’ Wine Auction, and the Celebrity Chefs’ Brunch.
