We are excited to announce this year’s 11th MEN Who COOK will be held in the gorgeous Grand Ballroom of the Adam’s Mark hotel.
What’s better than good food? Not much! Now entering it’s 11th year, MEN Who COOK welcomes locally recognized men as they take on the role of chef for the evening. They will prepare and present their culinary delights in a food festival-esque setting as a truly delicious way to celebrate and support CRISIS SERVICES. Our chefs aren’t alone in their endeavors, several area restaurants also participate to both complement and enhance the dishes from the amateur chefs.
As if live food wasn’t enough, there’s also live music! Truly, the founding idea behind MEN Who COOK was to celebrate the art of good food, and you can’t celebrate without good music. This year’s featured artist is Dee Adams. Attendants of men who cook are sincerely in for a treat, as she has been a Buffalo favorite since 2005.
This signature event will be held on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Come and treat all your senses amidst the backdrop of the beautiful Adams Mark Hotel !
