Originally formed in 1985 to celebrate James Beard’s 82nd birthday, Monday night marked the 27th annual Chef’s Tribute to Citymeals-on-Wheels. This annual al fresco event kicks off the summer season in New York City and is held at Rockefeller Center. While James passed away a few months prior to the first event, the gala now salutes America’s harvest and American talent as a tribute to him.

Monday night’s event was a celebration of food and film as renowned chefs gathered and served dishes inspired by their favorite movies. Over 40 students from ICE volunteered at the event and worked with some of the greatest chefs in the nation. We are so proud of their hard work – see below for highlights from the evening. Hats off!
