It was an orgy of food at Fenway Park Wednesday as some of the finest chefs from Boston and beyond gathered for a one-of-a-kind benefit for the One Fund. The event, which was dubbed Boston Bites Back by organizers Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai, was certainly the tastiest fund-raiser yet for the victims of the Marathon bombings. Guests paid between $100 and $1,000 to get in the door, where dozens of chefs were cooking and serving from behind concession stands and at tables set up throughout the ballpark.

Familiar faces in the crowd included Mayor Tom Menino, Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser, comedian Lenny Clarke, “Person of Interest” costar Kevin Chapman, Stacey Lucchino, former Patriots Matt Light and Steve DeOssie, Boston spa magnate Gretta Mona­han, car king Herb Chambers, Big Night Entertainment’s Ed Kane, Back Bay realtor Beth Dickerson, “Footloose” actor Kenny Wormald, actor-rapper Slaine, developer Arthur Winn, State Room owner Jim Apteker, Union Oyster House owner Joe Milano, and former politico Marjorie Clapprood.

The slate of participating chefs was impressive, and included the likes of Jody Adams, Ana Sortun, Todd English, Michael Schlow, Mario Batali, Dante de Magistris, Kevin Long, Jasper White, and Joanne Chang, among many others. Slaine and Wormald, friends since working together on the Harvey Keitel indie “God Only Knows,” said it was a privilege to be asked to attend. “Are you kidding me?” said Slaine. “Being able to give some money to charity and put a smile on people’s faces is the best part of making movies and music.” When they weren’t busy eating and drinking, the two were making plans to go to Thursday’s Bruins game. “I’ll call [Tyler] Seguin,” said Slaine. “That’s my boy.”
