SHARE Benefit at Chelsea Piers

What: Benefit for SHARE, an organization to support women who are survivors of breast and ovarian cancer
Where: Chelsea Piers, NYC, Pier Sixty

Me with Chef Sue Torres of Suenos in NYC. She taught the very first cooking class I ever took.This Search took me to an incredible benefit at the grand Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers. The benefit was for a wonderful organization, SHARE.

The fundraiser was all about...food! In the gigantic Pier 60, dozens of great female chefs offered delectable tastings of amazing food. There was booth after booth of tasting plates, as well as an endless selection of wine, liquor, and fancy cocktails (mojitos with aged rum, ginger martini, wine, wine, wine).

A Whole Lotta People at Pier 60 for the SHARE benefitThe food was fabulous! Some highlights included a mini, super buttery and fresh Lobster Roll from Pearl Oyster Bar (served by Sara Moulton), an Heirloom Tomato salad with mild and creamy house made ricotta (from Alex Guarnaschelli from Butter restaurant), and fatty sinful chopped porchetta on crostini from Porchetta restaurant in NYC. The best thing we had was an unbelievable walnut and raisin (at least I think it was walnut and raisin--perhaps one too many ginger martinis?) breadsticks from Amy's Bread, served by Amy herself. Most delicious breadstick on the planet.

Alex Guarnaschelli's Heirloom Tomatoes with House Made RicottaHappy Mess of Chopped Porchetta from Porchetta Restaurant in NYCI got to take some pictures with these fabulous chefs. It was really exciting to get a photo taken with Chef Sue Torres, of Suenos Restaurant in NYC. About 6 years ago, before I went to culinary school, or had even thought of becoming a professional caterer, I took a cooking class with this talented Chef. I can't remember what we made (and she asked me when I met her, which was a bit embarrassing), but it sort of got my whole culinary career started. So it was very meaningful for me to get this photo, at this stage of my life.

A wonderful event, and some fabulous female chefs. Maybe I will be there cooking next year...
