Gael Greene's, New York Magazine's "Insatiable Critic" from 1968 to 2000 joins The Guys once again to talk about her book Insatiable, which last weekend won a rave review from The New York Times. http://events.nytimes.com/2006/05/28/books/review/28schillinger.html
More seriously, she and The Guys talk about the charitable organization that Gael founded with her partner, the late and beloved James Beard: Citymeals-on-Wheels. Citymeals make sure that thousands of the homebound get a good meal delivered to them seven days a week. 100% of your contributions to Citymeals goes to purchasing meals for those in need. Administrative costs are absorbed by designated grants.
A fabulous way for foodies to get involved is at the upcoming 21st Annual Chef's Tribute to Citymeals: Tutto Italia. Some of the top chefs from Italy and from New York (chefs like Colicchio and Batali) will be at Rockefeller Center to bring you some of the best food in the world, and your dollars and their efforts will go to make certain that everybody gets to eat, even the frail and elderly. Check out www.citymeals.org. The contribution for Tutto Italia is $500, but anybody can help. A contribution of just $50 will buy an emergency food package, which provides 12 non-perishable meals.
