Charity Begins at Jalapeños

Just a quick photo round-up of the recent Send a Child to School fundraising event at the Australian Embassy. This year, a group of us in the puertas cerradas restaurant world were asked to participate and provide the food, and we, and several of our companions answered the call with signature hors d’oeuvres. Myself, Pablo from Casa Coupage, and Eric, the embassy’s chef, were also on hand to finish off the cooking, assembling and plating of the bite sized snacks. Unfortunately I didn’t get out into the event to snap some photos, there was just too much work to do behind the scenes! So, a few of the photos here were generously provided by the photographer from The Argentina Independent. The event raised funds to supply 600+ local children with backpacks and all their school supplies for the school year!

On to the photos – obviously the ones I’m in I didn’t take, nor the one of our little bite, jalapeños stuffed with our roasted beet causa being served, were ones that I took. We were trepidatious about offering up something so spicy, but the majority of the folk attending were foreigners, and, why back off from what it is we do? They went over brilliantly – all 400 of them slurped up, along with all the rest of the offerings from our friends at Casa Coupage, Treintasillas, Casa Felix, La Cocina Discreta, and Paladar. Desserts were provided by Scarlett Cakes – I didn’t get any photos of those. The rest of the photos are from the kitchen before they headed out the door.
