Author, chef, and fantastic human being Joyce Goldstein is turning 80, and her many colleagues from Square One and beyond are getting together to throw her a truly memorable party. On Sunday July 26th, ~PERBACCO~ will be hosting the evening, with chefs Anthony Strong (Delfina, Locanda), Staffan Terje (Perbacco, barbacco), Wendy Brucker (Rivoli), Mourad Lahlou (Mourad, Aziza), Gary Woo, Gerald Gass (McEvoy Ranch), Barbara Haimes, Derek Burns (Surf Spot), Eskender Aseged (Radio Africa Kitchen), Jennifer Millar (Sweet Adeline Bakery), and Amaryll Schwertner (Boulettes Larder, Boulibar). That’s a pretty amazing list of people that have been touched by this truly remarkable woman.
They’ll be preparing five courses inspired by her long career, including aushak, a Middle Eastern ravioli with ricotta and leeks, served in two different sauces, as well as a Moroccan fish dish in chermoula with couscous. Wine pairings will be selected by master sommeliers Evan Goldstein and Peter Granoff too. The dinner begins at 6pm and tickets are $250 each, all-inclusive.
Proceeds benefit Support for Families of Children with Disabilities, an organization that has been of great assistance to Joyce’s grandson, Antonio. Only four tickets were left at publication time, so don’t miss your opportunity to celebrate this wonderful woman.
