Top Chefs Unite to End Hunger
Some of the nation's top chefs will be taking their talents on tour with the aim of helping to feed hungry kids. A Tasteful Pursuit, as the tour is known, kicks off on January 26 at New York's Lever House Restaurant, where chef Bradford Thompson will be joined by Terrance Brennan and chocolatier Jacques Torres. Other stops on the tour include Palm Beach, Nashville, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.
A Tasteful Pursuit is the brainchild of Share Our Strength, an organization devoted to ending childhood hunger in America. According to the organization's Web site, more than 12.6 million children in America--that's one in six--are at risk of hunger. Here are some more sobering stats. Thankfully, chefs such as Michelle Bernstein (Michy's, Miami), Don Yamauchi, (Forté Restaurant, Birmingham, MI), and Zach Bell, (Café Boulud Palm Beach) will be cooking for the country and, ultimately, its kids.
