Fundraiser Cooking Lesson and Dinner!
Join us on Saturday, February 16th as the Haley House Bakery Café puts on a very special fund raising event.
Sign up for an in-depth cooking class and dining experience (5:30pm-9:30pm) to learn the principles of sustainable cooking from celebrated chefs Odessa Piper and Didi Emmons. Or, skip the lesson, and come for just the dinner (8pm-9:30pm)!
The class will prepare a Northeastern regional menu relying on ingredients harvested during winter in combination with other ingredients 'put by' from the winter larder.
This fundraiser event supports Haley House's Take Back the Kitchen (TBK) family cooking classes for CSA members at Madison Park, who are part of the CSA Connect program.
Ticket Prices for the Fundraiser:
Includes dinner and glass of wine*
Includes in-depth cooking class\demo, dinner, & wine*

Didi Emmons is a graduate of La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine in Paris, France and is the founding chef of four restaurants in the Boston area. These include The DeLux, Pho Republique, Veggie Planet, and Haley House Bakery Café. At Haley House she pioneered the Take Back the Kitchen Program, which provides cooking classes to inner-city youth. She also serves as a consultant to Project Bread's Chefs-in Schools program as well as the Boston Public Health Commission.
Odessa Piper belongs to the same generation of pioneer chefs as Alice Waters. She is famous for her regionally reliant Madison, WI restaurant, L'Etoile. Her work has been featured in Fine Cooking, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, and Wine Spectator. A James Beard award winning chef, she has also been a frequent contributor to NPR, and loves to share her approach to ingredients and recipes, including with the White House. Over the years, her menus at L'Etoile opened with this inscription: "Choosing lovingly grown food from within our region helps to hold all communities of life together thank you for supporting the farmers and their commitment to these patient arts."
