IRVING, Texas, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Nature's Pride® will be breaking bread with 40 of America's top chefs in support of the 25th annual Chef's Tribute in Rockefeller Center benefiting the legendary New York charity, Citymeals-on-Wheels.  The Chef's Tribute, which kicks off at 6:30pm on Monday, June 14, 2010, is a moveable feast prepared by a 'who's who' cast of culinary celebrities.

"Nature's Pride bread is proud to support such an extraordinary organization as Citymeals-on-Wheels, which has touched the lives of so many people by ensuring no homebound elderly New Yorker ever goes a day without food or human company," said Laura Pitlik, Director of Marketing for Nature's Pride.  

As part of the sponsorship, husband and wife chef duo Claudia Fleming and Gerry Hayden of Long Island's celebrated North Fork Table & Inn will prepare two dishes at the event using Nature's Pride bread, the only brand of 100% natural breads available across the country.  Chef Fleming will put her award winning dessert skills to work creating a rose poached rhubarb and strawberry compote with creme fraiche, topped with Nature's Pride Whole Wheat with Honey crumble, while Chef Hayden, whose cooking has been celebrated as "refined but never fussy...glorifying local treasures," prepares delectable Nature's Pride 12 Grain tea sandwiches with house-made dill marinated salmon, English cucumber and horseradish mousse.

Additional headliners of this year's tribute include: Daniel Boulud, DANIEL; Nobu Matsuhisa, Nobu Restaurants; Charlie Palmer, Aureole; Alfred Portale, Gotham Bar & Grill; Wolfgang Puck, Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group; and Jonathan Waxman, Barbuto.
