Now in its 11th year, MEN Who COOK again features men who are well-known or recognized locally for their business and/or community accomplishments. The amateur chefs donate, prepare, and present their favorite culinary delights to family, friends, colleagues, and others as a fun way to raise financial support and awareness for Crisis Services, the most comprehensive crisis center in upstate New York. Also participating are several area restaurants that both complement and augment the samplings of the non-professional chefs. Guests visit the food stations to sample each delicious preparation. This signature event will be held on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at the Adam's Mark Hotel.
