Featured Event: Hot Bread Kitchen Fête for 15

FEATURED EVENT: HOT BREAD KITCHEN FÊTE FOR 15

By Great Performances

On June 7, 2023,  Hot Bread Kitchen celebrated 15 years of Investing in Breadwinners at their Fête for 15 at The Altman Building in New York City. We were delighted to be their catering partner, and Gary Bedigan, Senior Event Director, and Kevin Jaeger, Event Producer, worked closely with the Hot Bread Kitchen team and the guest chefs to ensure the event went smoothly and that the food and service were beyond par. This included coordinating with dozens of chefs and our culinary team to create a feast for 300 guests including a VIP tasting experience featuring David Waltuck of Chanterelle; Regina Onal of Oohlam; Camari Mick and Mary Attea of The Musket Room and Rafs New York; and Chef Jae of KJUN.

Honoring longtime Hot Bread Kitchen Board Chair Diana Taylor and partners King Arthur Baking Company, the Fête for 15 Breadwinners Benefit gave guests a taste of the diverse flavors and talents of our city–and of Hot Bread Kitchen’s impact on our community and beyond. 

During this evening of community and culinary magic hosted by Gail Simmons, they gave a toast to the collaboration, dedication, and growth that have helped hundreds of women and people of color launch culinary careers and achieve economic mobility over the past 15 years.
