We're big supporters of the Housing Works Bookstore Café, an arm of Housing Works, the largest community-based AIDS service organization in the United States. So we'll be at their next fundraiser, A Taste of Home: Celebrity Chef Tasting and Benefit, on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 7:00 PM.
Hosted by Gail Simmons of Food + Wine and Top Chef, the event includes food from Michael Anthony (Gramercy Tavern), Brad Farmerie (Double Crown), Alexandra Guarnaschelli (Butter), and Elizabeth Karmel (Hill Country), plus beer, wine, and coffee. All proceeds benefit Housing Works.
Tickets are $60 (available here); VIP admission, including an hour of wine and cheese with the chefs, is $100. But we're giving away a pair of general admission tickets right here.
To enter, just answer the following question in the comments: What celebrity chef would you book for a benefit?
Contest will end and comments will close at noon ET, Friday, April 30, 2010. One entry per community member. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply. Housing Works Bookstore Café, 126 Crosby Street, New York NY 10012; 212-334-3324; housingworks.org. Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 7:00 PM.
