Chefs Tsai and Oringer prep for Boston Bites Back
Rockers aren’t the only ones pitching in for The One Fund. Chefs Ming Tsai and Ken Oringer are organizing an event at Fenway that they hope will raise $1 million for victims of the Marathon bombings. Boston Bites Back, featuring foods prepared by 100 of the city’s best chefs, takes place at the ballpark May 15. Tsai and Oringer both attended Friday’s press conference at the House of Blues and promised an epic epicurean party. “We share the same DNA,” Tsai said, referring to Boston’s music community. “We want to show the world how resilient we are.” Added Oringer: “Nothing speaks more to our collective resolve than an evening of hospitality, unity, and hometown pride in one of the most iconic venues in Boston.” Chefs will be cooking at concession stands and other locations in the park. Organizers plan to sell 5,000 tickets at $200 each, and 200 VIP tickets at $1,000 each.
