“Top Chef” alum, Stefan Richter, will celebrate his 15th anniversary in the U.S. this week with a special anniversary menu at his restaurant L.A. Farm.

The European chef is offering three courses for just $15 on April 9 and 10. It is his way of showing how thankful he is for all the success he’s garnered in the last 15 years.

Originally from Tampere, Finland, Richter began studying the culinary arts in his teens. He worked in various European kitchens before eventually settling in the U.S. after he was chosen as part of the creative team for the opening of the Bellagio Hotel in 1998. Richter appeared on two seasons of “Top Chef” and was a guest judge on the Finnish version of the show. He opened his restaurant Stefan’s at L.A. Farm in 2009.

The anniversary menu will include Gravlax with salmon, dill mustard sauce and watercress; Smoked Potato Soup; and German sausage with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes in a beer sauce.

The three courses will be offered between 5:30 pm and 10 pm on both days only.

Stefan’s at L.A. Farm is located at 3000 Olympic Boulevard, Santa Monica.
