Just a heads up about Men of Boston Cook for Women's Health, an event at the Codman Square Health Center in Dorchester...It's Thursday night, 6-9 PM, and tickets are $75. The deal is, they get a bunch of celebrity "chefs", that is, kinda B-level celebrities like Dick Albert, Mayor Menino, Christopher Lydon; lots of assorted sportscasters, politicians, and journalists, as well as a few faces from academia and business...These guys don aprons, and "serve", while the real chefs, from restaurants and caterers across Boston, man the tasting stations; you know the drill!
Participating restaurants this year include 224 Boston St., Bob The Chef's, Pho Republique, Perdix, Chef Lee's Famous Soul Food, Icarus, Jake's Boss Barbeque, La Bonne maison, Laurel, Tremont 647 and Venezia...Also lots more, and cool caterers, dessert places, and, (very important!!) Westport Rivers Vineyard, Greenvale Vineyards and Sakonnet Vineyards..
I went last year, and had my fill of lots of tuna treats; it seemed to be a theme! Also the best bread pudding I've ever eaten. It was also a great place to try 3 different barbecue spots in one spot (served by Hizzoner!)...I've gone for the past 3 years, because it's a great deal..I even designed their invitation(pro bono) this year..I have, however, no connection, financial or otherwise, to this event..I WILL, however, be going, and I'll be posting about it afterwards, so don't say I didn't warn ya!!! These things never seem to hit the board til it's too late...
