Photos From The C-CAP Gala In NYC

Daniel Humm, the executive chef and co-owner of Eleven Madison Park and the Nomad in New York City, was honored at this year's Careers Through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) benefit for his leadership and achievements on Wednesday.

The event brought in more than $1.2 million in one night — a record for C-CAP. These proceeds will go to the not-for-profit's mission of providing job training, scholarships, education, career opportunities and career guidance in the culinary arts to disadvantaged youth.

Among the 40 chefs preparing tastings at the benefit were Jose Garces (Amada), Dan Barber (Blue Hill NY & Stone Barns), Jason Atherton (The Clocktower), Gabriel Kreuther (Gabriel Kreuther) and Sarabeth Levine (Sarabeth's). Red Rooster Harlem's Marcus Samuelsson, who has received the honor before, served as the Chef Chair this year. Check out more photos from the night's event below.
