Date A Cook
Here’s a chance to kiss a cook – but it’ll cost you. And of course, the proceeds will go to a worthy cause.
The Friends of The FCI, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships for students of the French Culinary Institute, will host a "Live Chef Auction" for "dates" with star chefs such as David Chang, Melissa Murphy, Jacques Torres, Jean Georges Vongerichten, and Dan Barber. Winning bidders might land a meal with Jean Georges or a trip to the market with Dan Barber, among other prizes. The auction takes place on Monday, June 11, 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., at Cipriani, 200 Fifth Avenue. $250/person (646.254.7521).
