Storytelling club extraordinaire The Moth is kicking off their fall season with a Very Special food-centric show, featuring some big-name chefs and food personalities.

Top Chef host/ daddy drama-prone bombshell Padma Lakshmi will emcee an evening of stories from Momofuku bossman David Chang, author Adam Gopnik, fellow Top Chef-fer Gail Simmons and comedian Lisa Lampanelli. Chang, et al, plus a handful of common folk (everybody eats!) will each tell a ten-minute story connected to "adventures in food."

Will Chang once again defend charging $5 for a Coke? Will Lakshmi and Simmons finally get into the catfight we've been waiting for for the past four seasons? See for yourself on September 13 at the Great Hall at Cooper Union (7 East 7th St); $30 tickets available here.
