Galveston College and the Galveston College Foundation will host the Five Fabulous Chefs culinary celebration event on Sept. 13 and 14, from 5-8 p.m., at the Galveston College main campus atrium.


The culinary event will feature five of Galveston’s finest chefs, including Chef Mary Bass from La Cocina and Good Dough Bakery, Chef Justin Bowen from the Grand Galvez, Chef Juan Cardona from the Galveston Restaurant Group, Chef Grant Marion of the Tremont House and Chef Megan Walker from the Saltwater Grill.


The Five Fabulous Chefs five-course menu consists of exquisite culinary creations such as berry salad, Gulf-caught mojo shrimp, seared beef tenderloin medallion, blackened redfish and Devil’s food cake, strawberry mascarpone and buttercream.


“We’re thrilled to bring back the Five Fabulous Chefs event to the community,” said Galveston College Development and Foundation Director Kelly Kennedy. “We have a fabulous lineup of chefs that will be showing off their delicious culinary creations and providing a wonderful evening where guests will be able to mingle with other community members, enjoy a cocktail hour and an exquisite five-course dinner, all for a cause that will benefit the Galveston community.”


Proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales will benefit the Galveston College Building Tomorrow Capital Campaign for the college’s new 64,000-square-foot, three-story Health Sciences Education Center.
