Eighteen culinary masters will place their unique stamp on Taste & Tribute, the Tibetan Aid Project's third annual fundraiser. The chefs, in teams of two, will prepare and serve different and distinctive four-course menus to diners seated around them in a horseshoe configuration. Each course will be paired with fine wines from California vintners. The collaboration of these renowned chefs, 17 from the Bay Area together with Eric Ripert of New York's famed Le Bernardin, will make for an exceptional experience. The interactive table arrangement contributes to an atmosphere of camaraderie and goodwill. Presented in a festive setting with Tibetan-inspired decor, the gala event will be held at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco on Wednesday, October 22nd at 6 PM. The evening includes silent and live auctions and multimedia presentations on the Tibetan Aid Project's support for the production and distribution of centuries-old sacred texts. For over thirty years, the Tibetan Aid Project (TAP) has been helping to rebuild and preserve traditional Tibetan culture worldwide. Founded by Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku in 1969, the Project is staffed entirely by volunteers. Its original mission was to provide humanitarian aid to Tibetan refugees struggling to survive in exile. Today, TAP helps support the production and distribution of sacred Tibetan texts and art to Tibetans in Asia. It also provides general assistance to monastic centers, sponsors traditional ceremonies, and works to promote awareness of Tibetan civilization around the world. The Tibetan Aid Project is a non-profit tax-exempt corporation, registered as the Tibetan Nyingma Relief Foundation.
