Chef Jonathon Stranger Selected for 2019 Gala!

Spending weekends on the family farm in Chandler, OK, cooking dinner with his grandma, led to a strong interest in cooking for Chef Stranger. His passion and interest has taken him around the world to study with some renowned chefs, eventually returning to his hometown of OKC.

Chef Stranger’s most recent creation is Osteria OKC, a new Italian restaurant in Nichols Hills that he has opened with Chef Fabio Viviani. Jonathon¬† is also a co-owner of Prairie Wolf Spirits, a distillery based out of Guthrie.

We are excited to announce that Chef Stranger has accepted our invitation to craft the dinner for the 2019 Gala. This year’s gala, and end-of-year giving, will culminate our campaign for the $20-million Heart & Vascular Institute at Stillwater Medical.
