Great food…Even better cause!
Culinary expert Gail Simmons and celebrity chef Mario Batali are pairing up this summer and heading out to Grand Rapids, Michigan for the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s Celebrity Chef Cook Off, which benefits the Meijer Simple Give program, which restocks food pantries all over the Midwest region.
This is the Top Chef judge’s second time participating in the cook off, and she couldn’t be more excited. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be coming back to Grand Rapids,” she tells EPR Retail News. “Last year, the community really embraced the inaugural event and it’s a great cause. I’m so impressed and excited about what Meijer has done to raise awareness for their Simply Give program.”
Last year Gail faced off against former cheftestant and current co-host of The Chew Carla Hall. (Let’s hope she doesn’t spill any secrets to Gail’s upcoming competition and her co-host Mario!)
Guests in attendance will not only be able to enjoy Gail and Mario’s sure-to-be delicious dishes, but they’ll also have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with them throughout the evening. Lucky!
