Cook For Charity With Amaka Ubaka


We are welcoming Channel 7 reporter/fill-in anchor Amaka Ubaka as part of our continuing “Cook for Charity” celebrity chef series. On Friday August 18th, from 6:00PM to 8:00PM, Amaka will roll up her sleeves and get cooking with Executive Chef/Owner Paul Turano to serve specialty flatbreads to benefit Project HOPE Boston!

In addition to our signature menu items, Amaka and our kitchen will be serving up “The Amaka” special, a house-made whipped ricotta and chicken sausage flatbread with local peach and arugula salad, $16. 100 percent of sales from each $16 “The Amaka” flatbread will be donated to Project HOPE Boston.
