The Great Gathering of Chefs is an annual charity fundraising event held in New York City.  This gala event brings together over 150 of New York’s most renowned chefs to autograph copies of a new cookbook by Battman created specifically for the event.  Guests can mingle with these culinary masters while viewing the beautiful displays of food photography and sampling some of the delicious cuisine featured in the cookbooks.

All proceeds from this event are donated to Food and Finance High School, a public High School focusing on culinary education and careers.  The majority of students come from the outer boroughs, and this school provides a unique educational opportunity that they may not otherwise have.

About Food and Finance High School:

Preparation for higher-learning and the workforce is key to the ongoing success of our students. NYC comes together at Food and Finance High School to provide a rigorous and rewarding Regents Diploma and culinary curriculum for our students. We’re more than a school, we are a community that supports our students as they tackle new challenges and reach new heights. We work to inspire and to empower our students.

  • Students learn the true reward of hard work, dependability and time management from a staff of acclaimed chefs, educators and business leaders that oversee their curriculum, field trips and internships.
  • Food and Finance works to understand its students’ barriers of success and develops additional programs to support their needs and dreams
