Description

The Poor Chefs Competition is returning for it's fourth year to support Operation Come Home's Reality Campaign!

Each year, Operation Come Home invites local chefs to participate in this one-of-a-kind challenge. Chefs are asked to prepare their best dishes using only $3.15 per plate and a maximum of 3 items from a list of commonly-donated food bank items. 5 judges test each dish and mark them to determine who will be the Poor Chef Champion of the year!

This year, we will be hosting an "All-Star Tournament" with returning champs and competitors from previous years including:

Guests are invited to attend to see what fantastic creations these chefs come up with and enjoy an evening of good company, light appetizers and to learn more about the work that Operation Come Home does. We will have silent auction items up for grabs and a "Soup Kitchen" where guests can purchase grilled cheese and soup if they are looking for something a little more than appetizers for the evening.

This year's judges will be updated as confirmed. To date we have:

Knifewear Ottawa will be providing the winner's prize again this year. More excitingly, however, this year you can have your knives sharpened on site! Half of the proceeds from knife sharpening that evening will support Operation Come Home. Fees will be $6-10 for western and European knives and $10-15 for Japanese knives. Repairs for either start at $5.

Homeless youth in Ottawa often do not have the skills or knowledge of a chef, so preparing a meal with such limited resources is next to impossible. Instead, they turn to fast food or not eating at all. This event highlights the food security issues in Ottawa while raising funds to help support programs at OCH which teach youth how to prepare nutritional and cost-efficient meals for themselves.
