PROVIDED Men R’ Cookin’ at Harrah’s Resort is the ultimate foodie showdown.

More than 50 area chefs will gather for the ultimate foodie showdown Wednesday, Feb. 21, during the 17th Annual Men R’ Cookin’ fundraiser at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City.

From 6 to 8 p.m., the Waterfront Conference Center at Harrah’s will be filled with both professional and amateur local chefs serving up dishes of every kind imaginable — appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, desserts, and even beverages. Chefs will represent local restaurants, casinos, law and engineering firms, and more, with The Press of Atlantic City’s own Director of Entertainment Publications Scott Cronick and Publisher Mark Blum in attendance to show off their culinary skills. The chefs are gathering to help support the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, with event proceeds benefiting the organization.

Tickets are $60 advance, $70 at the door. VIP tickets are available for $100. Harrah’s is located at 777 Harrah’s Blvd. Go to
