MADRID – Sixteen famous Spanish chefs plan to cook up a storm on Feb. 11 at a like number of Madrid luxury stores, with the proceeds from the sale of meals going to fight child malnutrition in Latin America.
The fundraising event, known as “Soul Food Nights,” will benefit Accion contra el Hambre, a non-governmental organization fighting child hunger and malnutrition in Latin America.
Fashion boutiques, design stores and jewelry stores in a upscale Madrid neighborhood will host the chefs for the event, Soul Food Nights organizer and chef Mario Sandoval told Efe.
“It’s a very original project, it has not been done before in any other city,” Sandoval said.
Organizers already have “some tables reserved by companies, but there are still tickets for sale” at 250 euros ($333.05) for dinner, the chef said.
Diners will enjoy meals prepared by a famous chef, who will make a multi-course dinner for them to savor.
Soul Food Nights (www.soulfoodnights.org) is being promoted by Accion contra el Hambre, the weekly magazine S Moda and public relations agency Mateo&CO. EFE
