Chef Tong at Gilda's Club Feb 12


The popular appearances of Chef Christopher Tong of the upscale private gourmet dining service, My Private Chef, continue in the New Year with some wonderful menu ideas emphasizing healthy eating so essential for Gilda’s Club members and their families. People living with cancer know that healthy eating is important for the body and the spirit. The meals in this cooking series are designed to inspire people living with cancer to eat well, serve beautiful food and stay healthy.

Celebrating his European roots, Chef Chris is making a French-themed dish for his cooking demonstration: Chicken Marengo with Crusty French Bread. The dish is named after Napoleon’s battle of Marengo in 1800 and, lucky for us, it is filled with cancer fighting ingredients including tomatoes, onions and olives.

This FREE cooking demonstration is on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 6pm at Gilda’s Club Chicago. The club is located at 537 North Wells Street, Chicago. 312-464-9900.

Gilda’s Club provides a place where men, women and children with cancer, and families and friends, join with others to build social and emotional support in addition to medical care. Gilda’s Club is named in honor of the late comedian Gilda Radner.

My Private Chef has been a strong supporter of Gilda’s Club by providing this series of cooking demonstrations and conversations with Chef Tong. My Private Chef is enjoying popularity as one of Chicago’s favorite private gourmet dining services. Trained in European-style fine cuisine, Chef Tong established his reputation at fine restaurants and hotels in Florida, California, and Chicago. Now he has adapted his impressive skills to the world of private entertaining. My Private Chef offers enticing cuisine for a wide range of events, from intimate dinners to weddings to corporate parties.
