About Men Who Cook

Men Who Cook is a unique experience where invited guests enjoy food prepared by men who are leaders in the community. It’s upscale yet casual, with lively entertainment and creative fundraising built in, but above all it is astonishingly great food.

Each cook prepares a dish ahead, enough to serve about 80 appetizer sized portions, and transports it to the Dante Club where he will serve it. The event includes a reception hour with appetizers and wine sampling followed by dinner. Guests go to any number of cooks for sample size portions.

All our tickets are sold through cooks and committee members, so cooks are encouraged to promote the event to their friends and associates. It is a great way to enjoy great food and entertainment with friends or to entertain clients.

Many thanks to our 2020 Sponsors
