It’s a 12 year old recipe that’s one part foodie, two parts charity with just a dash of sexism mixed in to make it interesting. Nyack Center holds their 12th annual Men Cooking fundraiser on Sun June 9 from 5-7p at the Nyack Center. Volunteer chefs — all men — cook for the public, serving up a wide variety of dishes including ethnic cuisines, homemade ice cream and great BBQ, too.
