Men Who Cook Fundraiser – Sunday, March 5th!

The 18th Annual Men Who Cook fundraiser will take place the evening of March 5, 2023 at Explora starting at 6pm. Men Who Cook is a cooking competition for men and boys to show off their culinary skills. There are 3 categories of dishes: entrée, side dish, and dessert.  Cooks can enter more than one dish. Attendees have an opportunity to sample each dish and vote on their favorite dish in each category. Prizes are awarded for each group.

In partnership with Explora
Location: 1701 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104

Time: 6-8pm


You can purchase tickets from a GA NSBE Jr. member and tickets will also be sold at the door. Cooks are FREE and guest tickets are $20.00.


We would like cooks to confirm their dishes as soon as possible so we can make arrangements for the allocation of space during the event. Please email us as soon as you have decided the number of dishes you will cook, and the type of dish, whether entrée, side dish or dessert.  Also, please make sure to identify any meats and common allergens in your dish such as dairy, fish, eggs, shellfish, nuts, soy or gluten.

Silent Auction

In addition, there will be a silent auction during the event.  Please consider donating items for the auction.  Items may be arts, crafts, business services or other suitable items.  Contact us with any questions concerning donations. 

Parents are needed to help obtain prizes and awards and assist during the evening of the event.  We will have an parent meeting to review the details for the event and national convention on Thursday, March 2nd at 7pm.
