Join Us on 11/13 for a Meal to Remember

Staff Contributor: Melanie Miller

Want to help raise money for students to go to The FCI? For those of you who don’t know, The Friends of The French Culinary Institute is our non-profit arm that raises money to provide scholarships to FCI’s career students and will be having their annual gala dinner on Monday, November 13th, 2006 following our Alumni Awards Ceremony.

We are very excited for this year’s “A Meal to Remember” gala dinner, as it will feature the classics as well as their modern interpretation to display what keeps the culinary arts moving forward. Classic French dishes will be served next to its modern interpretation prepared by top New York City Chefs: Julian Alonzo (Executive Chef of Brasserie 8 ½), Zak Pelaccio (Executive Chef of Fatty Crab and 5 Ninth), Emily Isaac (Executive Pastry Chef of Union Square Café), as well as our own Chef Lee Anne Wong.

In addition to the delicious dinner and champagne reception (sponsored by Kobrand) there will be an auction with extraordinary items, such as a week in Sicily sponsored by Authentic Sicily, a cooking class with David Bouley, an original painting by Jacques Pépin, reservations at top NYC restaurants, and more. Please call us at 646-254-7521 if you are interested in purchasing a ticket to our gala dinner or visit
