The American bistro called Cook, located in Newton, is welcoming Jonathan Soroff, columnist for The Improper Bostonian, as part of its continuing “Cook for Charity” celebrity chef series.

On Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 6-8 p.m. Soroff cooks alongside Executive Chef and Owner Paul Turano. They’ll serve up flatbreads from the open kitchen, wood-fired grill.

In addition to Cook’s signature menu items, the restaurant offers “The Soroff” special, a house-made flatbread with Italian sausage, roasted mushrooms, vinegar peppers and provolone cheese ($15).

All proceeds from sales from each $15 “The Soroff” flatbread will be donated to the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation.

Soroff has long had a personal connection with the foundation, one that works to improve the lives of cancer patients and caregivers by raising funds to find more effective treatments and possible cures for pancreatic, carcinoid and neuroendocrine cancers.

There are over 100,000 people in the U.S. living with neuroendocrine cancers, and there is currently no cure.

Soroff, who lives in Newton, is a feature writer/social columnist for The Improper Bostonian and co-hosts “Status Report” on Boston Herald Radio.

The night of cooking is one of several celebrity chef events at Cook, all of which will raise money and awareness about a charity chosen by the specific celebrity of the evening.

The regular menu will also be available on the night, and reservations are recommended.
