Common Threads teaches low-income to make better nutritional choices. Chefs understandably love that, and even better, they are unstinting in their support for the organization— as last night’s rock star chef-studded event at Nellcôte demonstrated. Hosting chef Jared Van Camp welcomed Chicago’s Paul Kahan, Philadelphia’s Jose Garces and Marc Vetri, New York’s Bill Telepan and former Le Bernardin pastry chef Michael Laiskonis into his kitchen to cook for a black tie crowd in his glam-rock-themed Italian food palace, inspired by the villa the Rolling Stones stayed in while recording Exile on Main Street. Our man Huge Galdones was on the scene capturing it all; if you weren’t there paying $1,000 a ticket to help low-income families, here’s the party you missed.
