They’re getting ready to do it again: Soul Food Sessions, the dinner series cooked by African-American chefs and mixologists around Charlotte, just announced that ticket sales are open for their fourth event.

This time, the dinner’s theme is “A Caribbean Voyage,” from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 26 at Project 658, 3646 Central Ave. The chef lineup this time: Gregory Collier, Jamie Barnes, Greg Williams, Jamie Suddoth, Selasie “Sam” Dotse, DiSean Burns and Justin Hazelton, joined by a newcomer, Quientina Stewart.

The six-course dinner (well, more than six courses usually, since cocktails by Burns and Hazelton are presented as courses) is $80. Tickets are available at Eventbrite.com.

Soul Food Sessions started as a single event to raise the profile of minority chefs in Charlotte, but has since become a series of dinners that raise money for charities. This time, it will raise money for Project 658, a community space that serves refugee, immigrant and underprivileged communities in Charlotte.
