Last night I had the pleasure of attending a Guest Chef night at FareStart which is a local charity here in Seattle that provides “culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals.” They not only allow people to get culinary certifications to help them get and keep jobs, but they are also serving the community and helping to provide much needed meals to Seattle’s homeless and less-fortunate.
It appeared that monthly they do this Guest Chef Night which is what I got to attend last night. My good friend works in catering at the Seattle Art Museum restaurant, TASTE and her head chef, Craig Hetherington was the guest of honor last night. This is an amazing cause and I was so happy to support it while enjoying a beyond delicious meal. I wish we’d gotten a picture of the potato soup that started off the meal, but alas, I’m a bad blogger and didn’t even take the pictures I do have below. Thanks Katy for the pics!
I don’t remember what this was that I had below, it was the vegetarian option so it had corn, mushrooms, a cream sauce and beyond delicious potato dumpling things which have an actually name that I can no longer recall. But YUM.
Two of the people we went with got the non-vegetarian option and had the below meal. Ahi Tuna – yumm. I was jealous.
Then there was a peach upside down something or other for dessert. Peach isn’t my thing so I only took a bite, but everyone else swore it was delicious.
This was a really fun, yummy and awesome event to attend all in the sake of charity. I strongly encourage you all to make your way down to FareStart at some point if you’re in Seattle or to research if you have something similar in your city. What a great idea FareStart is implementing to help our homeless!
