GALLERY: Chefs Cook For Japan

Sharing a Brownstoner cocktail with Red Rooster bartender Kamali

Last night’s event Chefs Cook for Japan was a ton of fun! 100% of net proceeds from the event go to Japan Society; the food was fantastic and it was great to see so many people turn out for a great cause. The Red Rooster table served Cornbread with Tomato Jam and one of our signature cocktails, The Brownstoner. 

I tried a bunch of different dishes, but the night’s winner was from Ken Oringer of Clio and Uni Boston. Of course it’s not right for the Red Sox to beat the Yankees, but I gotta give him the win on this one, his Laqurered La Belle Foie Gras and Unagi with Kinome and Sweet and Sour Rhubarb was incredible. Great job, Ken!

Thanks to all the chefs who joined me at the event last night. It was a great evening for a great cause. As always it was fun to see my buddies and collaborate for a great cause. Thanks also to the team at Baltz and Co. for organizing the fundraiser.
