Event Alert: Chef Collaboration Dinner to Benefit Cooking Matters!

You know what gets my heart all a flutter?  When I see several chefs collaborating, especially when that collaboration is for a good cause.  Several weeks ago I spoke to you all about Taste of the Nation Boston, a stellar event bring over 70 chefs together in one room, each offering small plates of food to attendees, showcasing some of their best dishes, and all proceeds donated to Share our Strength.  On Monday night a much more intimate collaboration is being held, with all proceeds donated to another chapter of Share our Strength- Cooking Matters.

Cooking Matters is a cause near and dear to my heart, a course offered by Share Our Strength that teaches its participants how to grocery shop effectively.  This, of course, means buying the highest nutrient rich ingredients, at the lowest cost.  The knowledge gained in these courses give parents the ability to serve their children nutritious meals, aimed at ensuring their children are getting the vitamins etc they need to grow and to promote learning, without breaking the bank.  For more information on this great initiative please visit their website here.

Monday, May 9, 2011 five wonderful Boston based chefs are coming together at Andy Husband's Tremont 647 to cook a meal together to benefit Cooking Matters.  Pulling from all of their own creativity, they have put together a cocktail party followed by a five course meal, all including wine pairings. Tickets for this great event are $60.00 per person and reservations can be made here.
