Some people like to roll with celebrities, we would rather hang with chefs. Simply put, they make great food and we are huge on food.
As part of our involvement with St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, we were involved in putting together an all-star cast of chefs to cook an amazing 5-course meal this past Tuesday night. We reached out to 5 chef pals we’ve worked with in the past on Cart For A Cause.
Alex Becker – Nobu Weho
Sal Marino – Il Grano
Ilan Hall – The Gorbals
Ray Garcia – FIG
Sherry Yard – Spago
All proceeds from the packed night went directly to SVMOW to help them in their mission to prepare, deliver and serve over 4,700 meals daily to LA’s homebound seniors.
A huge thank you goes out to all 5 of our talented friends who donated their time and talent to this great cause.
One of the things we love about our city is the varied food culture that has been cultivated over generations of immigration.
One of our favorite things right now is the readily available onslaught of food trucks waiting to serve your every whim on almost every corner. Most specifically, we love Cart For A Cause (For full disclosure, GENTRY is part of the Advisory Board for St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, which Cart For A Cause benefits).
Cart For A Cause is a cuisine lunch truck that hosts a new celebrity chef every week with all proceeds going directly to Meals on Wheels. Past chefs/restaurants include Nobu, STREET, The Gorbals, Church & State, Animal, Il Grano, Comme Ca, The Foundry, etc.
This week one of LA’s treasures, Suzanne Goin of A.O.C., Lucques, and Tavern jumped on board.
Make sure to follow CFAC to see if they’ll be rolling by your place of business every Tuesday.
