Toques & Tonic


Bringing together the country’s BEST Chefs & Bartenders for Boston’s Premiere Culinary Event

This past February Chef Barbara Lynch hosted two incredible events to benefit the Barbara Lynch Foundation, which is dedicated to providing Boston youth with the tools to get up and out.

The festivities began with a Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef Dinner at Menton on Thursday evening and continued on Friday with Toques & Tonic which featured an all-star line up of  chefs and bartenders from across the country. Guests tasted small plates from over 20 stations and sipped craft cocktails and wines from the country’s leading taste makers.

The evening will also included live and silent auctions with Master of Ceremonies, George Foreman III, dancing to the beats of TJ Connolly, the Official DJ of the Boston Red Sox, and a few special surprises.

Stay tuned for Toques & Tonic 2015 details – You won’t want to miss it!
