Balancing the needs of the palate and the planet, chef Raymond Southern invites guests to join him for a special Earth Day benefit dinner from Thursday, April 22nd through Saturday, April 24th. Reserve a table at The Back Bay Hotel’s Stanhope Grille for a five+ course, environmentally-friendly feast which starts out with an amuse of foraged spring mushrooms and wraps up with a spring harvest berry slump. In between, there’s all sorts of seasonal, regional and fair traded food – all for $60 per person. Proceeds from the dinner (which is one of many going on across the country) will support Chefs Collaborative, and its continued educational programming for chefs who are committed to sourcing and cooking with local, sustainable and delicious ingredients. Call the Stanhope Grille at 617.532.3827 to book a table.
