Women Chefs For The Cause

Executive chefs Nicole Kaplan and Ivy Stark

Yes, you’ve heard it here too. That it’s often a man’s world in the restaurant biz, with women having to scrap and claw for every bit of recognition, every step of the way. However, A Second Helping of Life, is holding a big benefit event for breast-and ovarian-cancer survivors, boasting a notable lineup of stars, and all of the female culinary persuasion.

Prune’s Gabrielle Hamilton, Del Posto’s Nicole Kaplan, Butter’s Alexandra Guarnaschelli, Amalia’s Ivy Stark, and Rebecca Charles, inventor of the lobster roll, will all be front and center, along with such founding females of the New York food scene as Gourmet Magazine's Ruth Reichl, and the formidable Ariane Daguin of D'Artagnan.

Tickets are $300 for the event, to be held on September 17 on Chelsea Piers. Visit the SHARE website for more information.
