beard_chefs_asoltner_mrichard_300.jpgThis Monday, June 16th, America's world-renowned French chefs are descending upon Rockefeller Center for Crème de la Crème, Citymeals-on-Wheels Chefs’ Tribute fundraiser to honor the legendary masters of French cooking.

Each star chef will cook two dishes -- a classic recipe from one of the masters and an innovative creation of their own. New Yorkers including David Bouley, Daniel Boulud, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten will be joined by DC's Michel Richard, and San Fran's Traci Des Jardins and Hubert Keller, among others, to honor French master chefs including André Soltner (pictured above with Michel Richard), Paul Bocuse, and Pierre Triosgros.

Yes, the $600 price tag is steep, but proceeds benefit Citymeals' home-delivery of nutritious meals to frail, homebound elderly in New York City. 7:30 p.m., June 16th at Rockefeller Center To purchase tickets, contact Citymeals-on-Wheels: (212) 687-1290 or email.
