We updated you on his medical status, and then we told you about the fundraiser campaign for Eli Kulp‘s medical expenses, so now here’s something a little more lighthearted going on for the chef, with tickets available now. This Thursday, July 16th, join High Street Hospitality Group at Fork; they are hosting a benefit evening to raise money and show support for Kulp as he continues his recovery.
And you’re invited to take part.
As we all know, chef Eli Kulp of Fork, High Street on Market and the High Street Hospitality Group sustained serious injuries during the Amtrak derailment in May. After being rushed to surgery, it was announced that he’d suffered a spinal injury and that it would be a long road to recovery. Recent updates on the fundraising campaign page for Kulp reinforce this, explaining that the chef will remain in spinal rehab until the end of August, and enumerating the current out-of-pocket expenses his family is facing.
If you subscribe to the “there is no such thing as too much cheese,” philosophy of life like we do here at Cheezbooz, then mark your calendars for Sunday Feb. 22 and Monday Feb. 23. Because those days will have two blissfully cheesy events with Maître Fromager Max McCalman.
On Feb. 22, from 6:30-9 pm at Di Bruno Bros. in the Italian Market, DiBruno Bros. owner (and certified cheese addict) Emilio Mignucci will be teaming up with McCalman to host 18 guests at a cheese tasting reception. Then, the following evening at 6 pm, you can find McCalman at Fork, where owner Ellen Yin is working with the cheese expert to serve up a three-course cheese dinner, followed by a 45-minute Cheese Master Class taught by McCalman, “Cheese Myths and the Inexact Science of Wine Pairing.”
