A premier culinary event to fight childhood cancer.

Take your taste buds for a ride at this amazing culinary event complete with delicious food prepared by some of the country’s finest chefs. At The Great Chefs Event NYC, all-star chefs from both the Big Apple and across the US come to cook for you and help raise money for a worthy cause. Hosted by our Chef Chair Alex Guarnaschelli of the Food Network and Butter, with chef hosts Amanda Cohen, chef/owner of Dirt Candy and Hillary Sterling, chef/owner of Vic’s, this is your chance to sample succulent dishes from over 25 chefs whose restaurants you may not normally visit.

Beyond satisfying your appetite, the event also benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer.
