Our Annual Culinary Showcase Featuring Local Celebrity Chefs

It's almost time for our spring Culinary Showcase! On April 14th 2018, L'Ecole Culinaire will once again open its doors (and kitchens!) for this special KCA community event. 

Celebrity chefs will be working in a dedicated demonstration kitchen to guide a team of KCA culinary students in the preparation and execution of their assigned course: appetizer, entree or dessert.

Individual tickets are available for all to come enjoy samples of the various courses. We also have a few VIP tables for purchase where 8 guests can enjoy full-on table service at the best seats in the house! Whether you come to mix and mingle, or enjoy full-service meals, we hope you'll be able to join us for this night of delicious fun.

There will also be a cash bar, auction, and raffle that evening. It's sure to be fun that the whole family can enjoy!

Get your tickets before they sell out!

We can't wait to see the menus that our Celebrity Chefs will come up with for this event!

  • Terry Mille, who was featured on the Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen and is now the Executive Sous Chef of Sporting KC and Executive Chef at O'Dowds
