Join me in the fight against cancer while enjoying a one-of-a-kind dining experience above the crossroads of the world. I’ve prepared a five -course, prix –fixe meal of some of my favorite dishes to be served at a dining table 25 feet above Times Square in New York City through Mastercard’s Priceless Table. Dinners at Priceless Table will be served on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, July 16-August 2, 2014. The cost for the dinner is $100 for two, or $50 per person, which will be donated to Stand Up to Cancer.
I filled the menu with dishes, such as tomato watermelon gazpacho and ramen salmon salad, that have nutritious and timely ingredients. I try to eat healthy as often as possible, and was excited to include the omega-3s and good fats of the salmon and avocado we are serving. I also tried to be conscious of seasonality with fresh tomatoes and watermelon. Our bodies naturally crave things that are in season, so this gazpacho is perfect for healthful summer eating.
I've had several people in my life diagnosed with cancer in the last few years, so the Priceless Table for Stand Up To Cancer project really hits home. It's hard to sit by and watch as your loved one battles, and there's nothing you can do. Stand Up To Cancer is the best answer to that. Plus, what could be more fun than sitting above Times Square and enjoying a one-of-a-kind meal?
