Fare Start

Fare Start is a program many of us in Seattle (and beyond) are familiar with. This program not only feeds many disadvantaged adults, but strives to re-educate them with culinary careers. Doesn't the saying go....You can catch a man a fish and he will eat for a day, you can teach a man to fish and he will never go hungry?

The most public side of Fare Start is the guest chef dinners held on Thursdays. Leading chef's around the city donate their time and the food for the evening. They plan a 3 course menu, teach the students in the program how to prepare it, and execute the it along side them. 200 or more guests make a 20 dollar donation to the program and are treated to an inspired 3 course meal.

This coming Thursday the guest chef is Amy McCray of Eva. At her side is none other than her trusty pastry chef.....Me!!!

Our menu has been planned and we are gearing up for the fun night. We were paired with McCrea winery and have been sold out for about a month. In fact, we are over sold and are expecting 243 guests.

I am very excited to be able to participate in such an incredible program.

if RC2000 had a ticket, the event would certainly be grossly oversold.
