Watch out Gordon Ramsay — There will be a lot of cooks in the kitchen this weekend. Men will put on their aprons Saturday, Aug. 19 for the 8th annual Men Who Cook fundraiser.

Amateurs and their sous chefs will use original recipes to whip up appetizers, desserts, and main dishes. Taste testers (that’s you) decide what’s worthy of a second bite by tipping the teams.

The friendly competition benefits SECU Family House — a low-cost, comfortable place to stay for families visiting Winston-Salem while their loved ones receive care at local hospitals. Proceeds from Men Who Cook go toward keeping the cost of overnight stays reasonable for guests.

This year’s event is happening from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Forsyth Barn at Legacy Stables and Events at 4151 Thomasville Rd. Single admission tickets are $100.
