I want to give a special shout out and a sincere thanks to all of the sponsors, contributors, and fellow chefs who are supporting my wife Maya and I during our Brunch for the Horn of Africa this Sunday. Several companies and dear friends of mine helped us by donating items to be raffled or served at the brunch. I want to thank our sponsorsÂ Food Republic, Tadias, Urbanspoon, Paul Goerg Champagne, Radeberger Beer, and the Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard. I'd also like to give a shout out to fellow chefs who donated personal items to b raffled, like John Besh, Chris Consentino, Aaron Sanchez, and Scott Conant; as well as companies La Caravelle, Aldea, and NYC Espadrilles. With all of your help, we hope to raise a significant amount of funds for relief aid to famine victims in East Africa.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! Â We are all maxed out on reservation slots now, so it'll be a full house! A special thanks to all those who will be joining us as guests, too. Thank you for helping us come to Africa's aid! I look forward to seeing guests at my home on Sunday for a brunch to remember!
