Join us for A Culinary Evening to Benefit Cook For Your Life! We’ve teamed up with Rustico Cooking NYC to launch a hands-on cooking experience unlike anything you’ve ever attended. Guests will create a three-course meal of recipes from our James Beard Nominated cookbook, Cook For Your Life with the help of the Author herself, Ann Ogden Gaffney. Wine pairings, hors d’oeuvres, espresso and dessert will accompany each meal—and to end the night, there will be a CFYL raffle giveaway.



Celebrity Guest Host, “Fire It Up!” Chef Eric LeVine
Five-Time Cancer Survivor and Winner of Chopped!


As a cancer survivor, Chef Eric knows the importance of a support circle in fighting this life-threatening disease.  He advocates for the American Cancer Society and has been recognized by the Society with their prestigious Heart and Soul Award. Paying his good fortune forward is at the heart of Chef Eric’s work.  He continues to teach master classes and seminars for CaterSource, Event Solutions & The International Caterers Association. By teaching thousands of caterers new and innovative ways to better their business, Eric’s commitment to the success of the industry and future leaders is evident.

Food Art Magazine named Chef Eric one of their Top Ten Chefs.  He was featured in Jezebel Magazine in the Top Twenty Chefs of Distinction. Catering Magazine, Cater Source Magazine and Chef Magazine all recognized him for his creative small plate creations and trend setting approach. He has made numerous network appearances across NBC, ABC, Fox5, and The Food Network where he became the 2011 Champion of “Chopped”, the network’s highest rated show.

We are delighted to have Chef Eric join us in support of our mission to teach healthy cooking to people touched by cancer!

Cook For Your Life bridges the gap between the advice of your oncology nutritionist and your family’s dinner table. We are not an advocate for any particular food regiment or lifestyle choice, just the idea that home cooking is a great first step towards healthy eating. Our award winning cookbook and website are designed by and for people with cancer. We’ve served over 8,000 people in-person at our cooking classes and have reached over 2 million people more through our subscription-free website. Try our recipes at www.cfyl.org/recipes, or see our cookbook at cfyl.org/cookbook.
