Cook, the highly acclaimed American bistro located in Newton, MA is welcoming Channel 7 reporter/fill-in anchor Amaka Ubaka as part of its continuing “Cook for Charity” celebrity chef series. On Friday August 18th, 2017 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 Cook’s signature menu items, Amaka and the Cook 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.
