A Chance to Support America by Eating Caviar
If you like chanting USA, USA, USA in any setting then I hope you’ll be watching tonight’s vital USA vs. Canada game at the World Cup of Hockey. But if you’re not a hockey fan, or just more of a fan of dover sole and 40-day aged prime steak then there’s another event to get excited about.
This Friday, Barclay Prime is hosting a fundraiser for the American team competing at the 2017 global culinary competition, The Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France. STARR Restaurant chefs Alex Lee, Sebastien Rouxel and Barclay Prime executive chef Mark Twersky will prepare a special dinner featuring caviar, dover sole and 40-day aged prime New York strip steak.
Tickets are available for $250 per person and include a cocktail reception and four-course seated dinner. There is also a silent auction as part of the night.
Proceeds of the dinner benefit the ment’or BKB Foundation to provide educational and mentorship opportunities to aspiring culinary professionals around the country.
In 2015, the last year the competition was held, the United States won the Silver under chef Philip Tessier. It was the highest finish ever for the American team.
