Summer of 1,000 Dinners

October 1, 2009 by The Stove Monkey in Events

A New Season for Giving: medWish International’s Summer of 1,000 Dinners

1,000 dinners in one summer may sound like a hefty amount of grub, and believe me it is, but it’s also been a pretty awesome way to help medWish International raise some serious dough for a great cause.

For those unfamiliar with the organization, medWish is a non-profit based in Cleveland that’s committed to the collection, recycle, and reallocation of literal tons of medical supplies that would otherwise be discarded due to strict sanitation regulations in the U.S. Last year alone, medWish diverted an incredible 225.8 tons (fun fact: same weight of the Statue of Liberty) of medical supplies from landfills to regions all over the world—in places where people needlessly suffer because their health institutions lack the necessary medical supplies to care for them.

Oktoberfest: Doin’ it up right on the good old U.S.A.
So what first comes to mind when us chefs hear the term “Oktoberfest?”
Yep, beer. Just like you.
In addition though, of course we think about the many ways it seems us Americans have come to adopt the glorious combination of food and ale that is Munich’s 16 days of lederhosen-clad debauchery.
This past Saturday (September 19th) marked the first day of the 176th Munich Oktoberfest, but if you not able to make it to Germany for all the fun, there’s plenty right here in every corner of the good old United States you can raise a stein to.

A night of culinary greatness…for a great cause

I find it extremely rewarding, and humbling, to be able translate my culinary talent in helping greater social causes, and am completely stoked to be this year’s culinary chair for the Flavors of Northeast Ohio event.

Benefiting the American Liver Foundation, “Flavors” is a unique and creative culinary gala concept executed year-round by ALF chapters across the country. Each event spotlights premier regional chefs and creates a high-end, exclusive, gourmet experience for an intimate number of guests, who experience five courses of tableside-prepared culinary bliss, in addition to superb wine pairings.

Next Monday’s (September 21) particular event will be showcasing notable chefs and restaurants from around the fine city that is my hometown of Cleveland, and I can’t wait to cook my ass off alongside the likes of Brandt Evans (Blue Canyon), James Foreman (Chefs for Hire), Jeff Jarrett (North End Wine Bar), John Kolar (Thyme - The Restaurant), Jonathon Sawyer (Greenhouse Tavern), Kurt Steeber (Boulevard Blue), Matthew Mathlage (Light Bistro), Michael Nowak (Bar Cento), Peter Vaughty (Moxie/Red Cleveland & Sobe), Rick Carson (Vue), Steve Schimoler (Crop Bistro), and Timothy Maxin (Muse at the Ritz Carlton), among others.

Deliciousness will abound throughout the evening, with a menu that includes Scallop Ceviche, Seasonal Beet & Apple Salad, Tuna Nicoise and many more surprises!

Even better, the magic happens on the 21st in the awesome retro setting of the Silver Grille in Cleveland’s historic Higbee Building in Public Square. If for nothing else, you may know this building as the setting of the “visit to Santa in the department store” scene in A Christmas Story, which was filmed there. Groovy.

If you’re a Clevelander and have tickets for Flavors of Northeast Ohio, can’t wait to see you there…you’re definitely in for a treat. Otherwise, check out the list of other “Flavors” events around the country, and be sure to keep this on your radar screen for next year! www.liverfoundation.org/events/flavors/
