Welcome to Stir Up Some Love

We’ve curated a smorgasbord of chefs and their fantastic recipes. They’ve invited us into their homes and restaurants, and flung open their pantries. The result: 15 tantalizing dishes ranging from uptown to down home. Learn from some of the best regional chefs in these easy to follow demonstrations using everyday ingredients.

Your donation for each episode — or the full season — will be split 50/50 between the restaurants and the nationally-recognized Treehouse Foundation where kids who have experienced foster care, their forever families, and seniors all thrive by investing daily in each other’s lives and well-being. Please, join us and Stir Up Some Love.

This ain’t your grandma’s tartar sauce… but it is Kevin’s Nana’s and she taught him some of the best secrets this side of the harbor before he spent a decade cooking for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

We give thanks

Like all nonprofit organizations, the Treehouse Foundation needed to change course this year.

While we can’t host in-person fundraisers with food right now, we believe that it’s vital for the community to stay connected to local our restaurants. We have a long history partnering with restaurants – chefs, workers, and growers. Our goal is simple: support local restaurants while raising funds for Treehouse to support kids, families and elders.

We could never have pulled together Stir Up Some Love, partnering with dozens of inspiring chefs and their tireless staff, without the outpouring of generosity from our underwriters. To these fabulous and generous partners – we raise our glass to you.

Gracias. Merci. Shukraan. Thank you!
