Men Who Cook event benefits Glenmary Sisters | Community Spirit
The sixth annual Men Who Cook Mardi’ Gras Bash will be Saturday night, February 23, at the Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club.
This year’s celebrity chefs will attend an orientation 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, February 7 at the Owensboro Police Department’s Community Room, and media representatives are invited to attend. Men who Cook is the area’s premier Mardi’ Gras event , featuring live music, a great party, silent auction, and, of course, men who cook.
“The food is amazing. Those who attend will taste the most delectable and creative dishes,” said Richard Remp-Morris, director of development for the Glenmary Sisters. This unique food competition and party features chefs from the region preparing such delicacies as Stuffed Mushrooms, Cajun Turtle Soup, Brown Butter Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies and so much more. The event raises funds to support the mission work of the Glenmary Sisters, who serve the poorest Americans.
“It touches your heart to do something for those in need, and the Sisters work for those with the greatest needs,” said Ohio County Sheriff David Thompson, who chairs the event. The Glenmary Sisters are a community of Catholic Sisters who live and minister in rural America. Men Who Cook is the signature fund-raising event supporting their work.
Celebrity chefs provide 200 bite size portions of a main dish, side dish, soup or chowder, salad or dessert for the event, which will be 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. February 23. The men will compete for coveted Silver Spoon awards in the following categories: 1st Place Dish, 2nd Place Dish, 3rd Place Dish, Best Presentation, People's Choice, Best Decorated Apron and Best Decorated Table.
