Paul Cullen’s virtual ‘Cooking for a Cause’ benefits Food Bank students

March 9, 2023

It’s time to reserve your place for a unique virtual cooking class on Friday, March 31. Paul Cullen, a renowned chef, sommelier, guitarist, and former Bad Company bassist will provide step-by-step instructions on how to create a full gourmet meal in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Virtual show time is at 6 p.m., and  the evening is as casual or formal as you like. Hundreds of other foodies will be virtually cooking and dining with you. Proceeds benefit scholarships to the Food Bank of Delaware’s culinary training programs.

“I am so honored to be a part of this amazing fundraising event! The Food Bank of Delaware is an incredible organization which focuses on feeding the community and gives them hope,” Cullen said.

Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Cathy Kanefsky is also looking forward to participating in this culinary experience. “This is one of those times when everyone wins. How often do you get to create a delicious meal guided by a chef, enjoy that meal at home – and contribute to a workforce development program scholarship,” she said.

Tickets are $100 for a meal that serves 2. The event menu feature’s Paul’s Tuscan Spread, Mushroom and Sausage Risotto, Raspberry- Ricotta Mousse for dessert, plus Paul’s wine – a private Italian label.
