Careers Through Culinary Arts Program's Benefit 2012


 Michael McCarty


Careers through Culinary Arts Program’s Benefit 2012 to
Honor Michael McCarty
Event Funds Scholarships and Programs
 for Disadvantaged Youth

NEW YORK, January 8, 2012- –Michael McCarty, Proprietor of Michael’s NY and Michael’s Santa Monica, will be honored at the annual Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) culinary event on Thursday, February 16, 2012, 6:30–9:00 p.m. at PIER SIXTY at Chelsea Piers to support the national not-for-profit’s mission of providing scholarships, education, and career opportunities in the culinary arts to underserved youth. Tickets for general admission are $500; VIP tickets are $600 and $1,000 and are available for purchase by calling 212-974-7111 or at www.ccapinc.org .

Honorary Chairs are Bette Midler and Martin Von Haselberg. The Chef Chair is Marcus Samuelsson of Red Rooster. The vice-chairs for the event are Nina and Tim Zagat and Susan and Richard Grausman. CBS2 News Co-Anchor Maurice DuBois will be the master of ceremonies.

Guests of C-CAP will enjoy an evening of fabulous food, presented by more than 30 of the city’s long-time favorite and hottest star chefs, with wines donated by The Charmer Sunbelt Group. More than 60 New York City C-CAP high school culinary students are expected to assist the chefs of the city’s renowned restaurants. The evening’s festivities will also include a silent auction, including
once-in-a-lifetime culinary and travel packages.

“This year, C-CAP is thrilled to honor restaurateur, art collector, entrepreneur, vintner, and chef Michael McCarty for his remarkable achievements and contributions to the culinary industry and his commitment to nurturing the next generation of chefs,” says C-CAP’s founder and chairman, Richard Grausman. “Having Bette Midler and Martin von Haselberg as honorary chairs of this event is a tribute to Michael’s outstanding career.”

Michael McCarty has left an unmistakable impression on the food world with his legendary restaurants, Michael’s NY and Michael’s Santa Monica. Often known as the “Godfather of California cuisine,” Michael McCarty remains a driving force and inspiration in featuring local and seasonal produce, meats, and fish in his ever-flavorful cuisine. Some of the country’s finest chefs began their careers at Michael’s, including Jonathan Waxman, Mark Peel, Nancy Silverton and Sang Yoon. Michael has been a visionary, and his groundbreaking initiatives helped establish California Cuisine as a movement that transformed cooking in the United States. Along with Alice Waters, Michael pioneered the organic, sustainable, ingredient-driven farm-to-table explosion of New American regional food that has now become the gold standard for great American dining.

“The walk-around tasting event raises funds to support C-CAP’s mission of providing scholarships, education, and career opportunities in the culinary arts to underserved youth who are interested in pursuing careers in the restaurant and foodservice industry,” says C-CAP’s president, Susan Robbins. “For more than 20 years, we have been breaking the cycle of poverty for hundreds of qualified students across the country. We continue to manage the largest independent scholarship program and have awarded over $34 million in scholarships.”

As this year’s honoree, Michael McCarty will receive the C-CAP Honors Award. Past recipients of the C-CAP Honors Award include Michael Lomonaco, Marcus Samuelsson, Drew Nieporent, Alfred Portale, Lidia Bastianich, Thomas Keller, Charlie Palmer, Danny Meyer & Michael Romano, Daniel Boulud, Jacques Pepin, Egidiana & Sirio Maccioni, Nina & Tim Zagat, and Saul Zabar & Stanley Zabar.
