 This will be a very special evening to support the Kushi Foundation.  As a 501(c) 3 non-profit, proceeds go towards supporting the annual fund which makes up the short fall between operations expensive and tuition. This money will be used towards Educational Scholarship Funds, normal routine maintenance, support for the volunteer program and other special projects that keep our unique Institute operating and serving our community each year.

Eric Lechasseur | Gala Chef
Eric Lechasseur trained as a classical French chef in Canada, France and Japan and then was the Executive Chef at various resorts around the world. In 1993, Eric began his vegan macrobiotic journey to help his wife, Sanae, recover from ovarian cancer. He soon discovered that vegan macrobiotics was effective for treating his own very serious allergies. Hence, Eric’s interest in vegan macrobiotic cuisine developed and when combined with his classical French training, his creations of exquisite vegan macrobiotic cuisine were born. Soon after, his reputation caught on and he became a sought after celebrity chef extraordinaire. Some celebrities Eric has cooked for include: Oprah, Madonna, Tobey Maguire, Jim Carey, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sting.
