Children’s Hospital and The American Culinary Federation New Orleans Chapter have teamed up to host The Best Chefs of Louisiana to fete the outstanding chefs in our region. Past honorees have included Chefs John Besh, Susan Spicer, Tory McPhail, and Paul Prudhomme.

The party, held on April 7th at the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center, 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. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Children’s Hospital and the ACF-NO Culinary Scholarship Program.

Children’s Hospital is a 247-bed, not-for-profit medical center offering the most advanced pediatric care for children from birth to 21 years. With over 40 pediatric specialties and more than 400 physicians, it is the only full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South. The hospital’s mission is to provide comprehensive pediatric healthcare which recognizes the special needs of children through excellence and continuous improvement of patient care, education, research, child advocacy and management. No child, in need of the care Children’s Hospital provides, is ever turned away based on the family’s ability to pay.
