1 Night, 12 Kitchens: Stage is set for an unforgettable culinary 
experience to benefit students on April 26 

Cincinnati State’s Midwest Culinary Institute will host its 11th annual “1 Night, 12 Kitchens” on Sunday,

1 Night, 12 Kitchens is a signature culinary event with an educational purpose: to raise scholarship funds 
for students at the Midwest Culinary Institute.

This marks the 11th year in a row that Greater Cincinnati’s top chefs will gather at the MCI’s 12 teaching 
kitchens 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.

The event will open to “Top Chef Patron” premium ticket holders at 5 p.m., and to those with general 
admission at 6 p.m. It will conclude at 9 p.m. A silent auction will run from 5 p.m. – 8:45 p.m. This year’s 
event will also include a live auction, featuring a dream kitchen appliance set of stove, refrigerator and 
dishwasher provided by Custom Distributors.
