Grub Street hears that Jamie Bissonnette, hot off a trip to Hong Kong, and Louisville's Ed Lee (610 Magnolia) will pair up to cook a six-course meal for Revelry for Charity. In fact, it's a monthly dinner series that matches top Boston chefs with their national counterparts, so Bissonnette and Lee are just the tip of the iceberg. (Why do we think Jose Andres might be next?) As the name suggests, it's all for charity: Bissonnette and Lee have chosen the World Hunger Relief and the Claddagh Fund as their beneficiaries.
Tickets for the six-course meal, plus cocktails (this month they're courtesy Jefferson Bourbon), are $125. If that's a bit spendy, on Monday morning, Bissonnette and Lee will whip up a lower-key brunch/lunch open to the public.
Stay tuned for more inspired pairings: "We have some bad-ass chefs lined up," says their rep. Oh, and get tickets here.
