Event Overview:       

So what happens when 50 “home chefs” volunteer to prepare samples of their signature dishes for 500 gala attendees? An evening of fun and fellowship in support of the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council!


In a nutshell, the Top Home Chef competition is a unique event where 50 volunteer chefs prepare the meal for Gala attendees. Chefs will prepare about 80 - 100 small portions of a dish of their choosing, which will be served at the Gala on April 28th, 2018.


Guests will have the opportunity to sample and judge the food along with a panel of celebrity judges. Entries will be categorized by Appetizers, Mains and Desserts and our celebrity judges will be Chef D, Dana Short, Nick Benninger and Chef Scotty.
