WHAT:            Cook, the highly acclaimed American bistro located in Newton, MA is welcoming Erica Corsano, lifestyle editor and social columnist at The Boston Herald, as part of its continuing “Cook for Charity” celebrity chef series. On Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 Erica will roll up her sleeves and get cooking with Executive Chef/Owner Paul Turano where they’ll be serving up flatbreads all evening long. In addition to Cook’s signature menu items, the restaurant will be serving “The Corsano” special, a house-made flatbread with wood-roasted eggplant caponata, goat cheese, arugula and balsamic  ($15). 100 percent of sales from each $15 “The Corsano” flatbread will be donated to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) –Angell Animal Medical Center.

 

The mission of the MSPCA-Angell is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Their services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care.

Erica’s deep roots in the lifestyle realm reach back over a decade, beginning in New York City where she worked for some of the world’s most recognized luxury brands (Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, CH Carolina Herrera). She eventually moved over to the media side of life, regularly contributing to publications like Daily Candy and The Boston Globe, and later held editorial positions at Lucky Magazine (Boston Editor), Boston Common Magazine (Editor-at-Large), and STUFF Magazine (Editorial Director). Corsano then helped launch both Gilt City Boston (a subsidiary of Gilt Groupe, Inc.) and the Boston outpost for The Real Real.
