Our past interviews with Chef Kelvin Fernandez, Pastry Chef Thiago Silva and Food Network Star Yvan Lemoine introduced us to the non-profit organization, Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP). We’ve been fortunate to attend great C-CAP events in the past and are excited for this year’s 25th Anniversary Celebration Benefit taking place on March 3rd at Chelsea Piers’ Pier Sixty.
Former Chairman and CEO of Time Warner Dick Parsons and Restaurateur and Executive Chef Alexander Smalls will be honored at this year’s benefit. Parsons and Smalls are partners in the Harlem restaurants Minton’s and Cecil’s, which was recently named Best New Restaurant in America by Esquire Magazine.
Attendees will move from table to table, sampling delicious cuisine prepared by some of NYC’s most celebrated chefs, including Daniel Boulud of Daniel, Bryce Shuman of Betony, Michael White of Marea, and Dan Barber of Blue Hill. In addition, C-CAP Alumni Cesar Gutierrez of Lexington Brass and Veronica Rivera of Restaurant Marc Forgione. Cooking alongside the chefs will be more than 60 New York City C-CAP high school students and alumni. Click here for a full list of the renowned chefs and restaurants that will be in attendance.
All funds raised will support C-CAP’s programs providing scholarships, education, and career opportunities in the culinary arts to disadvantaged.
