Common Threads: World Festival

March 06 2008 - 4:10 PM

As it gets mentioned here often, charity food events are a great way to compare dishes, restaurants, enjoy special dishes and ingredients and get a chance to taste dishes prepared by chefs from other cities and countries.

March 17th, from 6-9pm, Common Threads is hosting their 3rd annual World Festival at the MCA. Celebrity chefs include Tom Colicchio, Govind Armstrong – both California folks… Colicchio by way of television I suppose. Belvedere is providing a vodka bar to go with the caviar… and premium ticket holders are included in an after-party at the James where John Legend will give a performance.

The best part is that it’s to benefit Common Threads who’s mission is to educate children on the importance of nutrition and physical well-being, and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking.
