2011 Chef's Night Out Raises Money for CCE's Cooking Matters Program


Chef's Night Out

The Ithaca Taste of the Nation Committee is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Chef's Night Out!

Fabulous Dinners hosted at elegant locations:
Tue. Oct. 25, 5:30-9pm - La Tourelle Resort and Spa
Tue. Nov. 8, 5:30-9pm - Celebrations
Each meal (beginning with a cash bar cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30) will be a 5-course delight created by a team of 5 local chefs - each preparing one of the courses. The chef teams will be different at each location and the menus promise to be very special.

The money raised from ticket sales supports Cornell Cooperative Extension's Cooking Matters program (formerly Operation Frontline), which has been operating in our area for 11 years in partnership with Share Our Strength, one of the county's leading national organizations helping to fight childhood hunger.
Cooking Matters utilizes the talents of local restaurant chefs and nutrition educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension to teach food preparation and nutrition to low-income families. Each six-week class series teaches the skills necessary to prepare and eat healthier meals on a limited budget. Every class ends with a hands-on experience, preparing the meal highlighted in that day's session, and participants leave with ingredients and encouragement to try their own variation at home.
