Around the World in 80 Sweets benefitting City Harvest

RECOMMENDED BY THE DAILY MEAL AND EPOCH TIMES.

For one night only, 80 of the world's preeminent pastry chefs gathered in New York City for the first time to present a unique tasting experience, benefiting City Harvest.

Including luminaries such as Pierre Hermé, Sadaharu Aoki and François Payard, these elite pastry and chocolate artists are all members of France's renowned Relais Desserts Association, a members-only group of masters representing 19 countries.

Guests mixed and mingled with these culinary masters while tasting their imaginative, expertly crafted desserts from across the globe and sipping delicious cocktails. Guests also enjoyed a selection of savory bites prepared by some of New York's most notable chefs.

100% of the proceeds benefitted City Harvest's work fighting hunger in New York City.


City Harvest presented our inaugural Leadership Summit on November 9, 2015, which brought together thought-leaders, innovators, philanthropists, policy-makers, and practitioners to imagine and debate the possibilities for a hunger-free city of tomorrow.
