An array of the most prestigious chefs will be joining together to launch Chefs to the Max, an ongoing dinner series designed to benefit critically injured longtime food journalist Max Jacobson.
Two days before Christmas, Jacobson was struck by a car while in the crosswalk at Windmill Parkway and Pecos Road as he walked from home to the gym. He sustained severe brain trauma from the accident. He is currently in critical condition at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.
Jacobson, whose 64th birthday is on New Year’s Eve, is currently Vegas Seven’s restaurant reviewer. Prior to that, he covered Orange County for the Los Angeles Times for 15 years. He moved to Las Vegas in 1999 to be the lead critic for Las Vegas Life. He has also written for numerous national culinary publications including Saveur and Gourmet. Jacobson recently co-authored “Eating Las Vegas” with fellow food critics Al Mancini and John Curtas.
