Haiti-Born ‘Top Chef’ Alum Team Up for Relief Efforts

To take part in the global relief effort to aid earthquake-ravaged Haiti, Top Chef alum Ron Duprat, who was born in Haiti, has teamed up with four fellow contestants of the Bravo show in organizing an all-chef Relief Benefit program for his native land.

Duprat has collaborated with Mattin Noblia, Hector Santiago, and eventual Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio in the all-chef effort, where all participating restaurants donate up to 10 percent of their receipts to Hearts for Haiti: An American Dining Relief Benefit on St. Valentine’s Day. The funds will be divided between two charities, Hollywood United for Haiti and Kinship Circle Disaster Relief, but everything will go to on-the-ground relief efforts.

“Food always brings people together,” says Duprat, who was born in Haiti but now resides in Hollywood and Naples in Florida. “I hope that this St. Valentine’s Day, every community will have at least one restaurant where people can dine out with their loved ones and share their hearts with Haiti.”

Ron’s Lattitudes Beach Café at the Hollywood Beach Marriott in Hollywood, Forida, Mattin’s Illuna Basque Restaurant in San Francisco, Hector’s Pura Vida – Latino Tapas Restaurant and Bar in Atlanta Florida, and Michael’s The Dining Room in Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa in Pasadena are among the participants in the efforts.

“Chefs always care,” Duprat says. “I hope chefs across the country will join us in this heartfelt effort for Haiti. One hundred percent of their donations will go directly to Haitian relief efforts for both people and animals. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
