On The Town:
Fifth Annual World Food Day Gala 2004
October 5, 2004

The Metropolitan Club of New York City was in full swing for Action Against Hunger’s (AAH) World Food Day Gala. The guests were a reflection of an international community committed to the fight against world hunger. Attendees included Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Dr. Elie Wiesel, Auctioneer and International Director of Impressionist and Modern Art for Christie’s Nicholas F. MacLean and, of course, StarChefs. Four chefs, Chef Karl Schmid of The Metropolitan Club, Chef Andrew Gold from The Institute of Culinary Education, Chef Cornelius Gallagher of Oceana, and Chef Gina DePalma of Babbo all dedicated their time and expertise to make the World Food Day Gala 2004 a success.

Menu highlights included Chef Gallagher’s Loup de Mer in a thin bread crust, and Chef DePalma’s Torta Caprese, a chocolate and walnut torte. The Gala raised awareness and funds to fight the severe malnutrition suffered by millions everyday in underdeveloped and war torn countries.
