Nights Out: Rising Stars/StarChefs

The StarChefs crew sure knows how to throw a party. This years edition of the Rising Stars New York was a fun filled night of  tasty nights.The 2015 Rising Stars award ceremony was held in the spacious Altman Building in New York. Some of New York’s  top fresh face chefs and bartenders were on hand showcasing some amazing bites and sips  from their menu. My favorite bite of the night  was from Bryce Shuman of Betony.  Uncle Boons, Boulud Sud and Nomad Bar were some of my other top choices. After the event, everyone straddled up and rolled on over to Toro for the after party . Great job Starchefs,  and we are look forward to the 10th annual International Chefs Congress taking place October.

AKI MATSURI 2014

When you are invited to an event that  takes place at the Brooklyn Brewery and is serving Japanese cuisine, you simply just go. The Gohan Society hosted their annual Aki Matsuri event this past week and it was grand. Gohan Society’s mission is to foster an understanding and appreciation of Japan’s culinary heritage in the United States through outreach to chefs, culinary arts professionals and all who admire and enjoy Japanese culture.
