Future Chefs: Look at all those happy faces.
As many of you know, I was a member of the Advisory Board for Future Chefs, a great organization, for many years and still serve as an Ambassador for them and a mentor for the kids, including alumni. What they do is give a leg up to urban, often disadvantaged, youth with jobs, guidance, apprenticeships, skills workshops, mentoring and much, much more. It has been an honor to work with these grateful kids and I have made many lifelong friends here. Especially in these stressful, uncertain times today it always gives me a lift when I am with them and reassures me that if this is the future then it is bright, indeed. You can watch the video on the website from their feature on WGBH to really see what happens.
Chefs In Shorts is the event that donates all proceeds to Future Chefs and it is always the highlight of my early summer. It's taking place at the Seaport Hotel in Boston on Friday, June 23rd and is an excellent way to officially kick off the summer grilling and barbecuing season. All of the Chefs In Shorts from many of the top restaurants in Boston will be serving up a delicious plate of food for you to sample.
So, it's not just a way to support this worthy cause. It is also a very fun night out. It's a social event where you will make new friends. It's an evening to enjoy some incredible food and drink from many creative, top chefs. It's a win, win, win for everyone. Won't you please join me? This is the 20th Anniversary of the event so it is bound to be a very special night. You can purchase your tickets here. It typically sells out so don't wait. Help us celebrate the future and meet these terrific kids!
As I always like to say: "You're not living unless you're giving." Please give yourself a great night out while building the next generation and the future food community in Boston.
