Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies and United We Feed present Food for Thought, a Casper Culinary Cook-Off, a fundraiser to benefit Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies. It is set to take place June 9th, 2012 at Sonny’s RV in Evansville.
Jake Gandolfo stopped in the Wyoming Food Bank Of The Rockies last week and cemented the details to make this event happen.
Jake Gandolfo recently gained some fame from being on the competitive cooking show MasterChef with Gordon Ramsay. He will be bringing his over-sized, charismatic personality to MC the evening’s festivities at Sonny’s R.V. on June 9th, 2012 for a fundraiser to help Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies. This will be a fun-filled evening with a cooking competition between local chefs and aspiring chefs, live music, libations, cooking demo by Jake Gandolfo and a LIVE auction where participants can bid on amazing personal cheffing packages featuring our chefs of the evening.
“Located in Mills, Wyoming the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies serves all 23 counties of Wyoming with the help of our 200+ member agencies. In the past year, just under 5 million pounds of food was distributed to more than 55,000 of our Wyoming neighbors.”
Jake and his wife Erin are on a “culinary crusade” of America. They recently bought a 32 foot motorhome and are traversing the country raising awareness and funds for under-fed people here in the states. Jake is using his culinary talent in different creative ways on his journey to bring awareness to “the cause”. While in Casper, he is teaming up with Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies and the great people of Casper to put on this once in a lifetime fundraising event.
Jake and WFBR will be rounding up some of Casper’s greatest chef’s and home cooks to compete in making some fabulous culinary offerings out of a secret ingredient provided by the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies warehouse. Guests will be invited to taste all of the fabulous dishes from each of the competing teams and judge for themselves. The professional judges will consist of Brian Scott from K2 Radio, Jake Gandolfo and food blogger, Sally Ann Shurmur. There will also be wine tastings, a silent auction, raffle and live music. The night will be rounded off with the opportunity for guests to bid on their favorite chef in our LIVE AUCTION.
