A Restaurant Gala on a Scale We Can Live With

Its event season in the New York restaurant world, so its not exactly news that theres another charity gala featuring chefs from local restaurants giving out signature samples. But we love Careers through Culinary Arts Programs A Taste of Fall. For one thing C-CAP is one of the coolest programs we know of, encouraging culinary talents in public high schools to find careers in the restaurant business. (The participating chefs are all New York City public-high-school graduates, the pride of Long Island City, Harlem, and Prospect Heights.) Plus, the scale of the event is a lot more manageable: Its only $110, and $75 of that is tax deductible. C-CAP students will assist chefs from Asiate, the Four Seasons, Tabla, and other good restaurants. While youre eating, $5 raffle tickets could score you a bunch of good stuff, including lunch at Caf Boulud, dinner at Craftsteak, or a session with hairstylist to the stars Michael Stinchcomb (thats the one were hoping for). So stop by Taj tonight you can buy tickets at the door.
