On December 10, 2012, the Asian Chefs Association and Chinese American Community Foundation will host this year’s Chefs Without Borders Holiday Lunch and Dinner at GLIDE Memorial Church. The annual event brings together award-winning chefs and over 100 Asian American community volunteers to serve a free lunch and dinner for 2,500 of GLIDE’s community of disadvantaged clients.

“The service has become a wonderful tradition at GLIDE and people tell us they look forward to it every year. It’s a great way to start the season of giving,” said Khai Duong, former Executive Chef at Ana Mandara and co-founder of Chefs Without Borders.

Under the direction of Duong and Chef Lawrence Chu, also a co-founder of Chefs Without Borders, members of the Asian Chefs Association and volunteers will prepare an Asian fusion meal to serve on December 10. The meal includes Chef Chu’s specially made sweet & sour meatballs, roasted chicken and vegetable dishes with Chef Duong’s gourmet sauces, spring rolls generously provided by Victor Lu of Dong Vinh Restaurant Equipment and Supplies in San Jose, and locally made cookies.

“It’s a lot of work to prepare quality Asian meals for an event like this, but the chefs love this opportunity to give back,” said Chu, whose patrons at Chef Chu’s typically include Silicon Valley’s most elite.
