In what is possibly my favorite culinary event of the year, seven of the Miami Valley’s most talented Chefs join forces to pull off a spectacular six-course meal, under a tent in the middle of nature, at the Glen Helen.
Whoo Cooks for You 2017 will take place on Sunday, Sept, 10th from 4-8pm.
The night starts off with passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails while you tour the Raptor Center, an outdoor education space, filled with birds that are being nursed back to health, and some that are permanent residents due to handicaps or injuries.
And then dinner is called and we hike up the trail a bit to a large tent nestled amongst the trees for an over the top dinner, each course prepared lovingly by one of the area Chefs who has volunteered their time to render the locally sourced ingredients into a delightful dish to serve to the hundred or so guests that attend this annual event. Each chef describes their dish and after a fabulous meal, complimented by an array of Ohio wines and beers. Coordinator Anne Simonson and her team often share some updates on the raptors being kept at the center. If you’re really lucky there will be a rehabilitated raptor ready for release that night. You’ll never be so excited to watch a bird fly away. Oh and this is a fundraiser, so bring some extra bucks for the silent and live auctions!
This event sells out every year so please order your tickets early to ensure your place at the table. For more information, please contact Ann Simonson or call 937.769.1902.
