Chef Jason McClain of the exclusive Jonathan Club, L.A.’s premier social club located in Downtown Los Angeles, Hosts 4 Chefs 4 Kids Harvest Dinner to directly benefit the Los Angeles Chapter of Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) on Thursday, October 18th, 2018 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm!
Chef Jason McClain, Executive Chef at Jonathan Club and a devoted C-CAP Los Angeles supporter, has invited three of his All-Star Celebrity Chef friends and fellow C-CAP supporters: Tony Esnault (Church & State), Sally Camacho Mueller (Tesse) and Suzanne Tracht (Jar) to come together for one very special evening where guests will enjoy an incredible four-course tasting menu paired with specially selected wines.
The evening will start with a very special Cocktail Reception at 6:30 pm featuring a delectable selection of hors d’oeuvres, premium wines, local craft beers and specialty cocktails created by Special Guest Mixologist Anthony Greco* (*C-CAP Alumnus). “It is always important to remember where you came from. Throughout my life I have faced a number of obstacles, but through all of my trials I have been lucky to be a part of C-CAP,” states Greco. “They not only opened a doorway to my dreams, they also illuminated my path to success. Now, as I look at the course of my life, I realize C-CAP has given me the opportunity to pursue my version of James Truslow Adams’ American Dream. My long term goal is not just to give back once, but to give back continuously—and share the immense gratitude I hold for C-CAP any way I can.“
The Dinner & Live Auction portion of the evening will start at 7:30 pm where chefs Susan Feniger (Border Grill), a true Celebrity Chef with numerous accolades, and Monti Carlo of Food Network’s The Best Thing I ever Ate, will co-host as Special Guest M.C.s for the evening, while guests enjoy a four-course dinner prepared by four of L.A.’s most talented chefs, all of whom give their time to support C-CAP Los Angeles students and alumni, an organization they are all very passionate about. “C-CAP is a wonderful and valuable organization. For the kids, it teaches and provides a solid foundation of culinary, professional, social and life skills. In many cases, the amazing C-CAP teachers and administrators act as a surrogate family for their students during a crucial stage of life,” says Chef Tony Esnault. “As chefs who accept C-CAP students for internships and jobs, it is our responsibility to take the baton and continue building a solid foundation for these ambitious young adults by helping them to thrive in a demanding environment that provides structure, discipline and organization, along with kindness, support and guidance.”
