House of Hope will invite the community to cook for a cause in its Cooking for Hope series, featuring chef Louie Bossi on Thursday, May 13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. During the virtual program, Bossi will guide guests through the preparation of a delicious three-course Italian meal.
Bossi is excited to lead the cooking demonstration. He made his first pizza at age 11. “I learned to cook as a kid out of necessity,” said Bossi. “Cooking is all about family, and that’s why I love to cook. I look forward to seeing everyone’s expression on Zoom during this class and sharing the joy of the meal with them.”
The cooking class will be held via Zoom and moderated by former news anchor Neki Mohan. For those who would like to cook along with Bossi, an ingredient list will be sent to participants along with the Zoom link the week before the event. Alternative ingredients can be provided for dietary restrictions. Grocery delivery is available upon request for an additional cost.
Bossi has a connection to House of Hope. During a dark period in his life when he suffered from addiction, he was a resident there. “I am supportive of House of Hope because they help so many in our community who struggle with addiction,” he said. “I know firsthand how hard that is. We all have someone in our family that faces alcohol or drug abuse. We are not immune.”
Tickets are $70 per person. To register, click here. The registration deadline for the cooking session is Thursday, May 6. Proceeds from the night benefit House of Hope’s substance abuse and mental health programming.
The next Cooking for Hope session will feature chef Pushkar Marathe on Sunday, June 13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
