Hi Boston!!! It’s such an honor for my events platform Cross Cultures to be collaborating with the prestigious Berklee College of Music’s partner restaurant B3 this September 18 (Tuesday). B3 normally serves American South cuisine but for this special evening (US$65 per head), executive chef Jeffrey Salazar, will be cooking up a spectrum of Filipino dishes—a tribute to his Philippine heritage—where guests are invited to feast together family-style. This is in line with our thrust at Cross Cultures to promote the exchange of cultures through food, in order to build a more global community. The evening will be accompanied by live music from Berklee College of Music.

Chef Jeffrey Salazar began his culinary career in Providence, Rhode Island and moved to New York City in 2013, working at a string of established restaurants including the Caribbean-inspired Cove Lounge in Harlem as Executive Chef as well as under Chef Bobby Flay at GATO Restaurant and Bar Americain. At B3, he spearheads a Southern-influenced menu that showcases the rich food culture of New England, where produce and fresh seafood are sourced from local farmers and fishermen. Embracing his Filipino heritage, Chef Salazar was inspired from a young age by his hardworking mother, originally from Navotas City, located north of Manila that is known as the fishing capital of the Philippines.
