Executive Chef of The Westin South Coast Plaza Hussain Zouhbi recently teamed up with U.S. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez to create a winning appetizer titled “Trio of Fillet” for Celebrity Chef OC, a new fundraising event for Community SeniorServ (CSS).
This inaugural, signature special event was a huge success, raising $30,000 for their senior nutrition programs, including those serving seniors in Costa Mesa. About 200 guests attended and had a great time watching the Celebrity Chefs compete while enjoying a gourmet dinner prepared by the award-winning Anaheim White House Restaurant.
Loosely based on the Food Network’s show “Iron Chef”, Celebrity Chef OC featured notable Orange County residents in a cooking competition. In addition to Sanchez, the other Celebrity Chefs that participated included: Richard Chambers, CEO, CalOptima; Lou Correa, California State Senator; Janet Nguyen, Orange County Board of Supervisors; and Reid Priddy, member of the gold medal winning Men’s Olympic Volleyball team.
