First things first: Sunday night's Northern Alliance dinner at jm Curley isn't cheap. Tickets are $250 apiece. However: The event is for a wonderful cause and the chef lineup is absolutely spectacular. Toro's Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette (currently shuttling between here and New York to open a Manhattan Toro), New York City's much-loved April Bloomfield from The Spotted Pig and The Breslin, and Matt Jennings from Providence's acclaimed Farmstead are among the chefs concocting a ten-course feast for the American Farmland Trust. The Trust bolsters family farmers, gives them access to water and land, and promotes healthy farming practices. Which means better food for us.
Canada's hottest chefs will also venture south for the event: Matty Matheson of Parts and Labor, Maison Publique's Derek Dammann, Lee Cooper of L'Abbatoir, Rob Gentile of Buca and Raymonds' Jeremy Charles.
Dust off your credit card and snap up your tickets here. Dinner begins at 6 p.m.
