Calling all foodies for a once in a lifetime auction!

HOUSTON – If you’ve ever wanted to ask your favorite chef or food expert about recipes or cooking tips, you’re in luck because now you can -- and it’s all for a good cause.

Gaeleen Quinn, founder of Ask Chefs Anything, shared details on a celebrity auction that will help restaurant workers right here in Houston.

This initiative started in New York, but it was brought to Houston, where the hospitality industry has also taken a severe hit due to the COVID-19 closures, leaving many workers without a job.

“Many people were able to collect unemployment benefits but really the immigrant community was not really necessarily able to get some of the help provided by the government, and we realized that as a community, we really have to get together and do something,” said Quinn, who’s glad to extend this online auction to the Bayou City where they expect to raise at least $15,000 to support hundreds of vulnerable households local to Houston through non-profit organization Southern Smoke Foundation.

“It’s already showing that Houston is a big foodie community and also a very generous one,” said Quinn about the great response of Ask Chefs Anything, where you bid for your chance to win a 30 minute virtual conversation with big names in the culinary world.
