1 Night, 12 Kitchens is Sunday, April 26
It’s a culinary showcase, to benefit students
Preparations are in their final stages for what the region’s foodies know as a don’t-miss culinary
experience that raises funds for a worthy cause.
The 11th annual staging of “1 Night, 12 Kitchens” at Cincinnati State’s Midwest Culinary Institute (MCI) will
begin at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 26 with a reception for “Top Chef” level patrons. Doors open for General
Admission ticket holders at 6 p.m.
This year, as in the past, the event is a sellout.
When it was originally launched, “1 Night, 12 Kitchens” was held in the 12 teaching kitchens at MCI. The
event has since spilled over into other areas of MCI, but the purpose is the same: to raise scholarship
funds for culinary students at the Midwest Culinary Institute. Over the past 11 years, more than 1,000
students have graduated from MCI’s culinary and hospitality programs, and approximately $600,000 has
been committed to support scholarships for them.
This year 30 of Greater Cincinnati’s top chefs will gather at MCI to prepare appetizers, entrée dishes,
salads and desserts. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the food preparation areas and chat with the
chefs and Cincinnati State students, then head out to the serving stations to sample the food and wine
that will be on offer.
This year’s event includes a silent auction, as well as a Live Auction starting at 8:10 p.m. in the
Demonstration Theater with featured packages that include:
A kitchen appliance makeover package with $8,000 worth of BOSCH appliances offered by
A Bradford Renaissance Portraits package worth $6,700, which includes a family portrait plus 5
Diamond Stay in New York with Ultimate Air Shuttle round trip tickets.
A Date-Night package valued at $2,000 including dinner, wine, chocolates and a personal jewelry
design and appraisal session offered by Paolo
Press coverage of 1 Night, 12 Kitchens is welcome; credentials will be required for admittance. Please
