The Chef Louie Story...

Chef Louie Night was inspired by the same thing that inspires approximately 87% of all other ideas: a 20-something guy looking for a way to meet and impress girls. These "Iron Chef Nights" (as they were called back in the day) started as a gathering of friends in an apartment in Brookline making food, drinking heavily, and having the time of their lives. Party guests would email in their votes for ingredients and Chef Louie would make a meal out of whatever got the most votes -- even if it was rum and coke, salmon, and blueberries. Before they knew it, they had a website and a small cult following....er, email database... and the parties started to grow. First out of the apartment and into nightclubs and bars around Boston, then into some of the cities finest restaurants and venues. The food has evolved from pasta on paper plates to high end multi-course dinners, but the themes and ingredients still remain a mystery to Chef Louie and his team until the morning of each event. Whether Louie is letting two "rising star" team members duke it out in the kitchen or Jerry Remy's to create a meal for 200 or whipping an intimate four-course, plated dinner for 60 at the Boston Center For Adult Education, Chef Louie Night is an event that shouldn't be missed by any foodie.
