Dinner and a Show: International Buffet and Food Contest

featuring Celebrity Chef Judges

 

Jacques Pépin

Alain Sailhac

Andre Soltner

 

 

 

 October 28
at the Yale Club of New York City
 

We're calling it a food fight, but it's really dinner and a show: while you dine on an incredible international buffet, you'll watch a live cooking competition. And... three lucky guests at the event will be chosen to join our illustrious trio of chefs—Jacques Pépin, Alain Sailhac, and André Soltner—at the judges table!

Mix and match teams of volunteer chefs from alumni of every International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) institution will be challenged to create and execute a dish showcasing signature ingredients from the IARU members’ home countries, and the winning team’s original creation will be featured as a special in one of the Yale Club’s restaurants. And everyone will get to enjoy a delicious buffet highlighting the cuisine of IARU member countries, and an open bar of beer, wine, and soft drinks.

Our menu:
From Denmark/ Switzerland: Frikadellar, Danish Meat Balls with Creamy Dill Sauce, Pickled Cucumber Salad, Danish Blue Cheese Breads.
From Japan/Singapore/China: Seared Tuna with Wakami in a soup spoon. Tempura Shrimp with Coconut Chili Sauce, Fried Tofu Peanut Sauce
From United Kingdom/Australia: Baby Lamb Chops, Meat Pies, Scotch Egg
From the USA: Mini Lobster and Seafood Rolls

The Yale Club of New York City will be hosting this fun evening of food and entertainment designed to showcase IARU and the cuisines of its member institutions, while fostering social networking and interaction among New York-based alumni of all IARU institutions, and raising money for the Yale Sustainable Food Project and Just Food.

Guest tickets start at $80—available at http://bit.ly/IARUtickets.
