Supporting women and tasting food from more than 60 male chefs, what could be better? The annual Real Men Cook event took place on Friday, May 8 in the new Double Tree Hotel on 12th street in downtown Cleveland. Now in it’s 21st year, the Real Men Cook is a fundraiser for the Cleveland social service organization, Women’s Alliance for Recovery Services.
For $15, I was able to taste more than 60 samplings of beef, pulled pork, cold and hot dishes from varying locales, soup, chili, and scruptious desserts. I think I filled my plate 3 times of delicious dips, chilis and macaroni and cheese dishes and one full plate of cheesecake, chocolate, brownies and peach cobbler.
After you got your fill of the samplings, you had a ballot which to vote for the top 2 chefs. I chose a delicious boneless chicken & cheese dip and the best looking dessert – a tropical cheesecake with coconut and kiwi topping! Mmmmmm…..so delicious!
