The American Culinary Federation New Orleans Chapter and WE have teamed up to host The Best Chefs of Louisiana to feature the outstanding chefs in our region.
The 7th annual Best Chefs of Louisiana Fundraiser will be held this year on Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 at the fabulous venue of the Lakefront Airport. The chefs event gives recognition to select chefs and honors them for their contribution to the New Orleans culinary scene. It's also an opportunity for them to showcase their talent by serving a sampling of their signature dishes to the attendees. In addition to the amazing food, the party will feature live entertainment, live and silent auctions and an open bar.
The ACFNO's Best Chefs of Louisiana fundraiser has chosen the We Heart Veterans and the ACFNO culinary scholarships fund for the 2017 charities.
