6th Annual A Spoonful of Ginger

Come participate in the 6th Annual “A Spoonful of Ginger” Food Tasting Event to benefit the Joslin Diabetes Center’s Asian American Diabetes Initiative. This year’s event will honor Lily Apteker, Sally and Larry Ho and the Wing Family, and also will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Joslin Diabetes Center’s Asian American Diabetes Initiative.

This will be a fabulous evening of food tasting and fundraising, bringing together many of Boston's finest chefs to raise money and increase awareness of the growing incidence of diabetes among Asian Americans.

Participating chefs include Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, Jasper White of Summer Shack and Joanne Chang of Flour Bakery and Myers + Chang, and many others. All told, there will be about 20 different chefs.

For the first time, the event will be held at the Museum of Fine Arts. To celebrate this new home, guests who purchase special “Art Lover” tickets may enjoy an exclusive tour from 5pm-6pm. with a MFA curator of either The Secrets of Tomb 10A: Egypt 2000 BC or The Silk Road and Chinese Art prior to the Ginger event program.

I attended this event last year, and had a great time with plenty of delicious food. It was great to chat with the various events and I do recommend you come to this event, and help a worthy cause.

Date & Time: Monday, April 5, from 6pm-9pm.

Cost: $250 per person. (All proceeds benefit Joslin’s Asian American Diabetes Initiative)

Special “Art Lover” Tour Tickets: $500 each (includes ticket to Ginger and special MFA Curator Tour)

About the Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI): The AADI’s mission is to raise awareness about diabetes and enhance the quality of life and health outcomes of those living with diabetes in the Asian community through research, education, outreach and improved diabetes treatment. Asian Americans are nearly twice as likely to develop diabetes as the general population – more than 10 percent of all Asian Americans have diabetes and even more remain undiagnosed.
