One of the litany of things I love about New York City is there is always something going on food, fashion and philanthropically fabulous related. Case in point the Citymeals-On-Wheels 27th Annual Chef’s Tribute at Rockefeller Center on June 4th at 7:30 pm. For the past twenty-six years, the NYC summer season has always been kicked off with a celebration that feeds both the body and soul by the Chefs’ Tribute to Citymeals-on-Wheels. Last year, over 1,000 guests gathered in Rockefeller Center and raised over $782,000, enough to provide 121,800 meals for our frail aged home bound fellow New Yorkers.
This year, renowned chefs ranging from Duff Goldman, Alex Pilas, Rick Bayless, April Bloomfield to Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rosi Parmacotto (my personal favorite) gathered in Rockefeller Center to celebrate food and film by creating dishes inspired by their personal favorite movies. A celebration like this would not be complete without signature cocktails from top shelf spirits and stellar wines from around the globe selected by the event’s beverage chairs Audrey Saunders (Owner, The Pegu Club) and Daniel Johnnes (Wine Director, The Dinex Group). What was great about this event was that I had the pleasure to meet Kathleen Turner, Danny Aiello, Vincent Pastore, David Burke and a host of other favorite actors and chefs. It was definitely a night to remember!
