The bar at Fatty 'Cue just before the boozing - we mean, Cocktail Party Fundraiser - began.
In the spirit of this Thanksgiving week, we want to offer up a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported The Cooking Room in our very first fundraising event! Last week’s cocktail party and silent auction was held at Fatty ‘Cue, just down the street from P.S. 3 where our pilot curriculum is well underway. It is wonderful to have the support of so many parents and local business – we could not keep cooking without you!

The event was a huge success – parents swapped stories (like one of a student asking for sea salt in her Christmas stocking) and everyone snacked on some Fatty ‘Cue fare (Mermaid Cove Oysters with smoked horseradish and Meyer lemon was a crowd favorite). Oh, and did we mention we raised $8,000 for the program? That’s enough for about 9 classes to complete the whole curriculum!

A very special thank you goes out to Porter House New York, Market Table, DBGB, Lincoln, Commerce, Osteria Morini, Spring 44, Txikito, Blue Smoke, Riverpark, Employees Only, Locanda Vini & Olii, L’Artusi, L’Ecole, Niko, Tertulia, Heritage Foods, Resto, and The Lambs Club for their generous (and surely delicious) donations. And a big toast to Southern Wine & Spirits for donating cocktail provisions. Cheers to all!

We are gearing up to host our first fundraiser for the program - a cocktail party at the new West Village Fatty 'Cue. The booze has been donated (thank you Southern Wine & Spirits!) the space has been secured (thanks Zak Pelaccio and the Fatty Crew!) and now the tickets are up for sale.
