The PA Hunger Action Center’s 15th annual benefit “One Great Lunch with 9 Great Chefs” will be held in conjunction with the Central PA Chapter of the American Culinary Federation on April 7, 2014, at the Harrisburg Hilton on Second Street.

Attendees will enjoy a sumptuous lunch and a cooking demonstration by Chefs from the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Culinary Federation, who volunteer their day for the cause and represent premier restaurants, such as Devon, Hilton Harrisburg, Houlihan’s, and Hotel Hershey to name a few.

Master of Ceremonies Charlie Gipe from Hershey Entertainment provides the entertainment, showing participants close up and on screen just how the tantalizing concoctions in this four-course lunch are created. The menu this year includes: Spring Crab Salad; Poisson Cru; Stuffed Flat Iron Steak with Spinach and Prosciutto; and Honey Cake with White Chocolate Lemon Curd and Blueberry Lemongrass Coulis, created and prepared by the winner of the 2014 Ladies’ World Pastry Championship, Chef Cher Harris, CEPC. Attendees will also receive the recipes for each of the meal courses.

And all for only $25 a ticket. To order, call the Center at 717.525.9807 or mail in a ticket order form with payment. Seats are going fast, so order yours today!
