Here I Am At The Ultimate Upscale Pigout

It was called "Sunday Supper at Chelsea Market benefiting the James Beard Foundation and Fulton Youth of the Future culinary scholarship programs."

It had us sitting at the longest table in food history -- at the Chelsea Market -- and sampling five appetizers, followed by lobster ravioli, which led to three fish dishes, four entrées, and four desserts.

And that was all after a cocktail hour with sushi and a "green table"!

I gamely went along with all this, feeling it's my duty to support the scholarship winners.

The culinary winners of the evening:

Gabe Thompson's endive salad with anchovy citronette and pecorino, Harper McClure's duck sausage choucroute, and Yigit Pura's "tout sweet patisserie."

Belch.

Yigit Pura can top chef me any day. You're also looking very dapper in the photo, Michael!

And you're not even eating in the photo! Probably digesting.
