In the spirit of the season, ChefUniforms.com has donated 45 chef coats to the World Cares Center for its Iron Skillet Cook Off. For those who don’t know what this organization does, its mission is to “alleviate the pain and suffering inherent in accidents and disasters by empowering individuals, strengthening communities, and training local citizens, agencies, and leaders to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergency situations.” In order to achieve this mission, the organization puts together events for the community.
One of the events that the World Cares Center puts on annually is the Iron Skillet Cook Off in Manhattan. This event features the top chefs of the New York Fire Department going head to head with local restaurant chefs, and 100% of the proceeds go to the World Cares Center. Monday, October 24th was the 10th anniversary of the event, and was an “All-Star Edition”, showcasing the winners of the past 9 years, plus 1 wild card entry. Not only is this event a blast, but it raises money for a great cause. Check out this picture of the 2011 Cook Off winners:
