Chef @ Home

Check back in the new year for our 2023 dates!

Thank you to everyone who came out to Chef @ Home on Thursday, March 24th. It was an amazing evening full of great food. Thank you to everyone who sponsored, bought ticket for, or otherwise supported Chef @ Home, allowing us to make over $7,000 for BGC Durham and the children and youth we support. 

Ticket holders joined BGC Durham and Food Network Personality and Chef Andrea Nicholson (from Butchie's Restaurant, Banana's, and Dish Play) for an evening of fun, delicious food, and great raffles!

In this virtual event, participants picked-up ingredient kit before the event with everything they needed to prepare 2 or 4 servings of Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas with Pico de Gallo Salsa and dessert (generously donated by Farm Boy) and a Chef @ Home Swag Bag, then followed along with Chef Andrea as she shared all her tips and tricks to cook the meal to perfection.
