Celebrity chefs get cooking for fundraiser
If you’re dashing through Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday — or just in the neighborhood and want to satisfy a sweet or savory craving while helping to end childhood hunger — drop by Vanderbilt Hall to sample dishes from 30 of the city’s most celebrated chefs and eateries.
Billed as the World's Largest Bake Sale, and helmed by Food Network star Sandra Lee, the event seeks to raise at least $50,000 for area food banks through the Share Our Strength organization.
“One of my foremost goals is to see every child nourished both nutritionally and emotionally … (so) please join us for delicious desserts and savory treats,” said Lee, who will donate $25,000 to the NYC Food Bank.
Lee will be joined by chefs Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse and Lidia Bastianich, and “Ace of Cakes” star Duff Goldman, during the event, which will run from 11:30 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The NYC fundraiser will be one of 54 held simultaneously nationwide, said Lee -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend.
