Gourmet Gala review.
The 2005 Gourmet Gala held on Sunday, July 10th, 2005, and sponsored by The Gourmet Retailer Magazine and Liberty Richter brought more than 1,300 retailers, vendors, and guests to the Broadway Ballroom of the Marriott Marquis in New York City for an evening of culinary elegance. Aside from wonderful networking and incredible cuisine, the event raised over $100,000 for Share Our Strength, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger in the United States. Guests dined on signature dishes of some of the finest chefs from across the country, and were entertained by special appearances by Morimoto: Iron Chef Japanese; co-host of Food Network's "The Best Of", Marc Silverstein; and Michael Lomonaco of Guastavino's and Discovery Channel's "Epicurious," as well as a special appearance by Joe Perry of Aerosmith.
