Join Metropolitan College and honored guest Jacques Pépin for a gala event celebrating MET’s 50th anniversary and Chef Pépin’s 80th birthday. The best chefs and finest food and beverage industry professionals will be on hand to make sure you have an unforgettable evening of food, wine, and festivities!
THIS JUST IN: As “an individual who has improved how Americans think about what they cook, eat, and drink,” Chef Pépin has just been named the first recipient of the Julia Child Award by The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts. Another great reason to join the celebration.
The entry fee of $150 includes food, drink, and camaraderie with some of Boston’s culinary greats, plus an autographed copy of the Chef’s forthcoming cookbook Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul in the Kitchen—the companion piece to his new 26-episode series set to broadcast on PBS stations this fall.
Thank you to all who participated in the event.
