I am so excited to tell you about a really exciting food charity event that's coming up in a few weeks here in Boston.
On Friday, March 30, 2012 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, the East End House will be holding its annual Cooking for a Cause. It'll be an incredible evening where some of the area's best chefs and mixologists, along with wine, beer, spirits, and coffee vendors, will come together to create a fantastic evening of food, cocktails, wine, and entertainment.
The event benefits the East End House, a community center in Cambridge that reaches out to under-resourced families in Cambridge. The East End House offers all sorts of services to the community, including an emergency food program, child care program, after school programs, and training workshops for adults.
The line up of local chefs is pretty impressive. There are many excellent chefs from Cambridge, such as Tony Maws from Craigie on Main, Jody Adams from Rialto, Peter McCarthy from EVOO, and Mary Dumont from Harvest.'
If you haven't had a chance to try out those new restaurants in Kendall Square yet, you could sample the dishes from several of those chefs at this event, such as Chef William Kovel from Catalyst, Chef Michael Leviton from Area Four, and Ming Cao from Fuji, the new Japanese restaurant in Kendall.
