Men Who Cook

Save the Date October 20, 2019

Thank you to our chefs, community members and business leaders that attended and participated in our 2018 Men Who Cook Fundraising Gala. Last year’s event was a tremendous success; we had 33 local “Men Who Cook” chefs that served over 175 guests at our sold-out event. 

Because of YOU our event was a great success in 2018!


We look forward to celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Men Who Cook with you at the Guilford Yacht Club on October 20, 2019.

Men Who Cook has been and continues to be a significant and meaningful part of our story. Over 25 years, the event has grown to become our biggest annual fundraiser with all proceeds benefiting the women and families of the CT Shoreline. The support that the Women & Family Life Center receives from Men Who Cook helps women and families move closer to economic security and success, access safe and affordable housing, take steps toward freedom from violence and harassment and build a community and confidence.

Thank you to Ric Orlando who will be returning this year as our Emcee and guest judge!  New Haven native Ric defeated Bobby Flay on the hit Food Network series ‘BEAT BOBBY FLAY’ and is also a past ‘Chopped’ champion. Find out more about Ric here!
