Some of the most celebrated chefs from around the world joined Chef Daniel Boulud for the 22nd Annual Sunday Supper, hosted at Restaurant DANIEL. The annual event raised over $850,000 to prepare and deliver more than 115,000 meals to New York’s City’s homebound elderly.
This year’s lineup of international guest chefs included chefs Pedro Bargero (Chila, Buenos Aires, Argentina), Luke Dale-Roberts (The Test Kitchen, Cape Town, South Africa), Neil Perry (Rockpool, Sydney, Australia), César Troisgros (Troisgros, Ouches, Loire Valley, France) as well as pastry chef Ghaya Oliveira (Restaurant DANIEL).
“I am thrilled to celebrate yet another successful Sunday Supper at DANIEL, to be able to cook alongside my talented peers from around the world and to help raise funds for Citymeals on Wheels,” said Chef Daniel Boulud. “Citymeals supports the people who built this city and continue to make it a place I am proud to call home.”
For more than twenty years, Chef Boulud has hosted this intimate dinner, inviting notable culinary talents to join him in the kitchen to prepare and serve a lavish and inventive multi-course menu.
Beth Shapiro, Executive Director of Citymeals on Wheels, added, “On behalf of Citymeals on Wheels, I thank Chef Boulud, once again, for hosting another special evening in support of our organization. Year after year, Sunday Supper makes a difference in the lives of the city’s most vulnerable population by raising funds to prepare and deliver thousands of meals to the frail aged. We also thank the generous chefs who joined us, the talented staff at DANIEL, our sponsors and all of our guests for their contributions toward a night we won’t forget.”

Oliveira of Restaurant DANIEL.
