WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Westchester Community College Foundation is cooking up something delicious. This fall, the college is hosting a four-part, public cooking demonstration for to help support a good cause.

The college's Great Chefs of Westchester Series will feature cooking demonstrations and three-course dinners in October and November, led by professional chefs from across the region. These events will be held in the college’s state-of-the-art kitchens and culinary dining room and will feature culinary celebrities who will teach students how to dazzle future dinner guests. These star chefs were selected by Philip McGrath, curriculum chair of the college’s Culinary Arts and Management Program.

The evenings will begin with liquid refreshments, followed by a demonstration of each meal. Afterward, students and guests can enjoy the chef’s creations, paired with an accompanying wine or beer. Each guest will leave with recipes for dinner and beer or wine pairing information.

Funds raised through the series will help the Westchester Community College Foundation meet student and college needs not met by public funds. As part of its mission, the Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for students. More than $20 million in scholarship support has helped more than 16,000 students complete their education since the Foundation was created in 1969.

The Foundation will assist the Culinary Arts and Management curriculum through funds raised by these events. This academic program leads students to careers, not only in restaurants, but also in commercial, on-site, and institutional establishments. Coursework includes culinary arts, business management, work experience and a liberal arts core. Participation in the Great Chefs series helps transform lives through educational opportunity.

100 percent of all funds raised from the Great Chefs Series go directly to the Westchester Community College Foundation’s Scholarship and Program Fund, which also supports the On-Campus Food Pantry. The pantry assists students who are struggling with food insecurities.

Tickets for each event are $150. For details, visit the college website or call 914-606-6558 .
