Also in attendance will be Jane E.

For more than four decades, SHARE has provided dedicated and experienced support for women affected by ovarian and breast cancers as well as their families.  They’ve operated survivor-led helplines and supports groups, offered support services in English and Spanish, and provided free education from top cancer experts.  In the last year alone, they have reached 150,000 people with their programs across the country, including those in underserved communities, to create better health care, an improved quality of life, and a cure for these diseases.

A Second Helping of Life further upholds its mission of women supporting women by pairing each chef with top women in the world of theatre, radio, television and journalism as their sous chef. The walk-around tasting will highlight a diverse range of cuisines from the top toques such as Barbara Sibley’s Braised Brisket Barbacoa Tacos, Rebecca Charles’ infamous Lobster Rolls, Angie Mar’s delicious Truffle Burgers, Amanda Cohen’s Shanghai Shoots, Roxanne Spruance Pork Belly, Sara Jenkins Porchetta Sandwich and Alex Guarnaschelli, Heirloom Tomato Lasagna.
