Join us as we commemorate 30 years of our trailblazing Certificate Program in the Culinary Arts program with famed chef, author, and program co-founder Jacques Pépin.


This star-studded evening will include a walk-around reception featuring the “Best of Boston” chefs, a four-course dinner with wine pairings, a dessert reception, and a live auction of exceptional culinary experiences. Funds raised will benefit the Jacques Pépin Legacy Fund and BU’s 30th Anniversary Fund.
