FUNdation Paella Party with Manu Alfau + Cook-along Livestream [09/21/2022]


We are excited to invite you to a special experience exclusively employees of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's celebrating FUNdation FUNsGiving!

FUNdation presents our 5th Annual FUNsGiving Giving Opportunity & Chef Live Series! We are inviting some amazing local chefs and bakers to show us how to make some of their favorite recipes and raise money for a great cause in the process.

This year, we will have a series of live cooking demonstrations with local chefs. As has been tradition, our Giving Opportunity is raising money for local food banks that need every dollar this season more than ever. Help us break new records this year with fundraising for these incredible organizations: DC Central Kitchen, Chief Seattle Native Works and Sovereignty Farm, Queen Anne Food Bank and Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank.

Anyone can join the cook-along which will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. Feel free to procure the ingredients yourself or have an ingredient kit (full of everything except the perishable items) sent straight to your doorstep. 

We hope you're ready to learn how to make Chef Manu's Secret Paella Recipe!

Join us for a cook-along of epic proportions where you can interact with Manu and receive realtime answers to any questions you have while in the kitchen.

This experience will be live streamed on Wednesday, September 21st @ 12:00 PM  PT.  If you cannot attend the livestream experience, the video will be made available for you to watch on-demand. The livestream is expected to be 1 hour in length.
