PORTSMOUTH — The 8th Annual Celebrity Chef Dinner and Silent Auction is Tuesday, March 1, at the Friends Community Center, with doors opening at 6 p.m. This exciting event, sponsored by The Counseling Center, is a fundraiser for the Summer Outreach Club, now in its 27th year. The Summer Outreach Club, a part of prevention and outreach services, is a nine-week summer day camp program that is free to children ages 5-12 in Scioto County and beyond. The camp offers free breakfast and lunch, motivational, educational and recreational activities in a hands-on learning environment, all while partnering with multiple community agencies and volunteers within the area who graciously teach classes, mentor and support the over 120 kids each day.

Every year the success of the event is due to the participants that partner with Celebrity Chef Committee planners to make this event a huge success for area kids who attend the program. From now until March 1, this year’s chefs will be featured discussing their love of cooking and the dish they will be preparing. This event would not be possible with these talented, philanthropic, community stars who often give of their time and talents to support positive community initiatives. This week’s feature chefs are Joe and Amy Glockner, Will Burke and Maxine and La’Toshia Malone.

What is your fondest cooking memory?

Watching, learning the basics of culinary preparedness from my grandmother on any given Sunday. I never remember seeing a recipe card or measuring instrument present.

I also learned the difference between a pinch and a dash could be up to 1 cup

Do you know what appetizer you will be making and if so, what is it?

Cowboy Candy, a jalapeno that has been candied to perfection, sitting a top of a beautiful dollop of cream cheese that just so happens to be joined by a sliver of delicious thick sliced bacon, all residing on a multi grain cracker.
