Yesterday, over 150 chefs came together in New York City to celebrate food at The Great Gathering of Chefs. The party was a benefit for Action Against Hunger as well as the launch of the books Pasta and Pudding by renowned food photographer Alan Batt (a.k.a. Battman) featuring photos of dishes from celebrated chefs such as Alex Guarnaschelli, Daniel Boulud, Ivy Stark, Emeril Lagasse, Marc Murphy, Eric Ripert and Gina DePalma, just to name a few. ICE Director of Student Affairs Andy Gold contributed a beautiful dish to Pasta.
At the event, guests mingled with the master chefs and sampled cuisine from the books. ICE students volunteered to work alongside the chefs as they prepared sample versions of their dishes. It was not only a great chance to meet some of the most prominent chefs in the country, but also get some invaluable experience at a notable food industry event.
