On Friday, June 29th, the Snapchefs joined Pedro Martinez, professional athletes, and over 45 Boston chefs for an evening of great food, festivities, and fundraising at the second annual “Feast with 45” event held at Fenway Park. Our Snapchef apprentices joined in the culinary collaboration of local culinary talents, including Andy Husbands of The Smoke Shop BBQ, Jason Santos of Citrus & Salt and Buttermilk & Bourbon, Brian Poe of the Tip Tap Room, Chris Coombs of Boston Chops and Deuxave – all of whom were led by chef Nick Calias of Brasserie Jo.
Chef Anthony Ambrose and our executive team of Snapchefs also assisted in crafting a delicious catering experience for the event’s VIP reception , featuring Mayor Marty Walsh, Celtics star Al Horford, former Red Sox greats Jason Varitek and Tim Wakefield, Patriots players, Matthew Slater, Geneo Grissom and Sammy Morris, and of course, Hall of Famer and Red Sox legend Pedro Martinez.
The Feast experience featured samples of dishes, drinks and desserts from all of Boston’s top chefs, a silent auction, cash bar, and a night of mingling with local sports heroes. All proceeds from the event benefit the Pedro Martinez Charity, a non-profit organization raising funds to support education and social services for thousands of children in both the U.S. and the Dominican Republic.
