​Twelve local chefs served up samplings of everything from soup to steak last Saturday at the City Market during an unusual promotion by Toyota that "showcased the thriving Kansas City culinary scene and celebrated the connection between farmers markets and the communities they serve."

And yes, cars were part of the deal, too.

The Toyota reps had erected five tents around the City Market that morning: four for the rotating group of chefs and their cooking assistants and one reserved for a few shiny Toyota vehicles. This promotion wasn't entirely a culinary event, don't you know.

It was a cool, beautiful Saturday, so the market was full of shoppers (and gawkers), and patrons began standing in line pretty early to receive little plates of fare from Webster House chef Charles d'Ablaing, Jennifer Maloney from Cafe Sebastienne, Michael Smith of Extra Virgin and Michael Smith, Richard Ng from Bo Lings, Michael Foust of the Farmhouse, Ted Habiger of Room 39, Cody Hogan from Lidia's, caterer Renee Kelly, Janet O'Toole of Bloom Baking Company, Alex Pope from the R Bar, Trezo Mare's Robbie Padillo, and Todd Schulte of Happy Gillis Cafe and Hangout.

The participating patrons were encouraged to visit all four of the tents by receiving a "passport" that was stamped at each visit; passports with four stamps enabled the holder to receive a free potted herb plant. Visitors were also eligible to ride in one of the featured Toyoto vehicles.
