The biggest, swankiest chefs’ dinner in the LA Basin, OC Chef’s Table is back at the largest ballroom Disneyland® has to offer in the Disneyland Hotel’s Grand Ballroom on Sunday, March 1st. Here’s your chance to dine at your favorite chef’s table and give to a worthy cause that we’re all working together to find a solution for – homelessness.
Each year, more top-ranked chefs in Orange County (and now L.A. and Palm Desert, too) fairly clamor to be involved in this one great night as they individually cook for 10 guests while collectively raising more than $1 million in funds for specific projects such as emergency and permanent housing for homeless families with small children.
More Than 45 Celebrity & Award-Winning Chefs in One Room
This year, Food Network’s Celebrity Chef Jet Tila is back with his darling Pastry Chef wife, Ali.

Laguna Beach is (so far) sending up four great chefs, all of whom have participated in the past – they’re hooked! Chef Greg Daniels at Harley, Chef Andrew Gruel with Slapfish and Co-host of the popular OC Restaurant Radio Show, and Chefs Nick Bennett and Jayro Martinez at the newly rocking AHBA will be there.
Doing What it Takes to Get Homeless People Back on Their Feet
This is a renowned annual gala, produced by Illumination Foundation, the fast-growing non-profit agency working to disrupt homelessness on a permanent basis. While Illumination Foundation started with a mission to primarily help homeless women and families, its work has rapidly expanded to provide temporary housing and a full circle of services to everyone struggling in homelessness, including our veterans and homeless individuals requiring assistance and recuperative care after hospitalization and surgery.
Clearly, I love what this group is doing, and I’ve been lucky enough to be interviewing each of the chefs involved in the event for three years now (such amazing individuals).
