2020 Gourmet Guys & Gals event has launched!

Calling All Amateur Chefs and Food Service Professionals!

The Friends of the Children’s Museum at La Habra are happy to announce a new revised version of a delightful 26+ year old La Habra culinary tradition – Gourmet Guys, an event that supports The Children’s Museum at La Habra. Yes, this year Gourmet Guys & Gals invites female competitors to roll up their sleeves, choose their tastiest recipes and join the competition.

Gourmet Guys & Gals is returning in an exciting new format as a delicious virtual event conducted entirely online. Participating chefs will prepare their favorite dish, share it via a short video and ask others to vote for their dish by making a donation to the Museum.

Through the Friends of the Children’s Museum at La Habra’s online platform, competing chefs will use email, social media and text to share their video with their network.

Instead of cooking for 100+ people, competing chefs will create one dish.  Interested chefs can participate from anywhere in the world this year since they won’t need to prepare a ton of food for a live event in La Habra. Our goal is to attract 100+ participating chefs to support the Museum.

The general public will have the opportunity to watch chefs’ preparation, listen to the description of their dish and see how their recipe turned out. They will also be able to respond to chefs’ request for support.   

The Gourmet Guys & Gals event portal makes it easy for participating chefs to share their videos via a variety of social media channels. Competition categories include guys, gals, elementary and junior high students, high school students and professional chefs.

On Saturday evening, November 7th, we invite you to join us for dinner at our free live online 2020 Gourmet Guys & Gals event that will feature dishes by local celebrity chefs, the naming of 1st place medal winners in each Gourmet Guys & Gals chef competition category and the crowning of our Chef of the Year, our top overall fundraiser, who will win a 5-night vacation to Lake Tahoe.
