The Jersey Shore Chefs Association is doing good and celebrating New Jersey at the same time.
At its annual fund-raiser called “WinterFest,” which this year will be held on Sunday, March 11 from 3:30 to 7:30 pm (Crystal Point Yacht Club, Crystal Point Yacht Club, 3900 River Road in Point Pleasant Beach), the chefs who work in restaurants, as caterers, in culinary education and at health-care facilities will stage culinary competitions and present signature dishes at dine-around stations. New Jersey’s bounty will be inherent to the event.
WinterFest raises the monies that allow the Chefs Association, a 501(c)3, to give back to the community in many ways. Beneficiaries include the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean counties, the Victor J. Houston Scholarship Fund, and Childhood Hunger Day.
Also at WinterFest, a silent auction will take place that includes donated gift certificates to restaurants and dinners cooked by a professional chef at your home.
Tickets to the benefit are $65 per person.
