The 9th Flavors of Fall Event

The much anticipated, 9th annual Flavors of Fall will be held this Monday, the 12th at the The Regattabar in the Charles River Hotel.  From 5:30 to 8:30, guests will  have three hours to meander around, listen to great music while sampling top fall creations from some of Cambridge and Somerville's best chefs. Unfortunately, if you did not get your ticket already, the event is sold out.  Here is why! 

The event is hosted by Boston Chefs as a fundraiser for Possible Project, a non-profit organisation that strives to teach and guide young enthusiasts towards running their own businesses.  

Surrounding the space are sample sized, fall inspired dishes from each restaurant. A couple of my favorite dishes from last year came from Harvest, who presented a a delicious pudding topped with vanilla creme fraiche and burnt well as a subtle dribble of liqueur. It made for a solid two visits.
As always, Chef Michael Leviton from Area Four always does a fine job, this time offering a delicious Lucky 7 Berkshire farm terrine over crostini with a tart and tangy fall fruit chutney.

The entire event has an elegant feel, contributing to which will be the Rollo Tomasi Quartet, lat year they played two great sets throughout. A brief pause will be taken to address the organizers as well as the immediate goals of Tutoring Plus.  As with all fundraising events, it is so nice to see the connecting efforts from different parties; the guests, the staff from Boston Chefs, Possible Project and of course, the Chefs that all took the hours out of their busy restaurants to show their support.

Throughout the evening,  refreshments are also served and this year they will be provided by Brooklyn Brewery and Dreyfus Ashby and Co. among others.
For those of you lucky enough to have snagged tickets to this event, you will be very happy! And for the rest of you, will just have to wait until next year:)


  1. Great recap! I am wishing that I had some more of the brisket from Catalyst right about now!
