Our annual fundraiser to benefit NECAT
Boston’s Culinary Arts Training Program
April 22, 2017
When Olives opened its doors in 1989, the restaurant started a culinary revolution in Boston and launched the careers of countless executive chefs and restaurant owners. The Olives alumni have maintained a close bond over the years, and encouraged the careers of the next generation of cooks.
Olives Chef de Cuisine Paul O’Connell (former chef/owner Chez Henri in Cambridge) continues to embody the passion and spirit of such collaboration as the Culinary Training Director at the New England Center for Arts and Technology (NECAT). NECAT ‘s innovative culinary arts and job readiness training program has moved many participants from the margins of society into the mainstream. In the same way that Olive’s transformed Boston’s food scene, NECAT is transforming lives.
Join us at NECAT where Olives is popping up with the original crew to reunite and to recreate the signature dishes and drinks that became the hallmark of the original Charlestown eatery. The Pop Up Benefit will feature an elegant cocktail reception followed by a multi-course dinner inspired by their original menu.
This exclusive and unique reunion of chefs promises to deliver Olives most memorable dishes in an interactive dining experience, one that promises to feed your appetite and help fund NECAT’s mission of preparing disadvantaged individuals for work, life and a promising future.
Event Co-chairs Olivia English & Oliver English.
