October is here, and that’s when big food events crank up all over Charlotte.

The next one is coming Oct. 16, when the “Order/Fire” chef documentary series comes off the screen and into the kitchen for Order Together, a collaborative dinner featuring 17 chefs, mixologists and food producers.

It happens at 6 p.m. at Heirloom, and features a seven-course dinner cooked by a Charlotte food Who’s Who: Jamie Lynch of 5Church/Sofia’s; Greg Auten, Pinky’s Westside Grill; Clark Barlowe, Heirloom; Jamie Swofford, The Chef’s Farmer; Greg Collier, The Yolk Cafe; Paul Verica, Heritage Food & Drink; Alyssa Wilen, Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen; Chris Coleman, Stoke; Luca Annunziata, Luca’s Modern Italian Kitchen; Matthew Krenz, The Asbury @ The Dunhill; Rocco Whalen, Fahrenheit Charlotte; Blake Hartwick, Bonterra; Ashley Bivens Boyd, 300 East and Heritage; Miranda Brown, 300 East; Bob Peters, The Punch Room; and Jason and Jeff Alexander, Free Range Brewing.

All of them have been involved in “Order/Fire,” which is produced by photographer Peter Taylor and chef Marc Jacksina.

Tickets are $125 and include a cocktail and beer pairings. The dinner, which includes a silent auction, raffle and merchandise sales, will raise money to cover production costs for the third season, which will include episodes in Wilmington and other cities in the region. Tickets are available at www.orderfire.tv.
