Save the date for the 12th Annual Men Who Cook, Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Men Who Cook will be returning to the gorgeous Grand Ballroom of the Adam’s Mark hotel on Wednesday, October 3rd.
Men Who Cook is a yearly celebration of some of Buffalo’s hallmark attributes: good food, good music, and good people gathered together for a great cause, to support the mission of Crisis Services.
What’s better than good food? Not much! Now entering it’s 12th 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 Dean Gionis from the Hot Club of Buffalo band.
