The COVID-19 Pandemic continues to hit members of our community very hard. Many of our residents are still experiencing severe food and housing insecurity and need your help. In addition, the Culinary Community and our wonderful Naples restaurants been impacted, too.

This event provides funding for grants to the agencies that help members of our Collier county community who are facing hunger and homelessness.  The following agencies will receive support:  Meals of Hope, The Hunger and Homeless Coalition, and Legal Aid Services of Collier County. Your support is truly appreciated.

Tickets are $150 and can be ordered online by clicking the link below! Those who make an additional donation of $100 or more to the NWC to support these agencies will be honored as Patrons with a special thank you and recognition.

Each luncheon is small and exclusive. No more than 20 guests will attend each luncheon and they will enjoy personal interaction with the chef, a specially created 3-course meal, plus a glass of wine.  Tables will be distanced, and can be tailored to the size of your group to ensure we are adhering to safety guidelines.

Want to participate but still hesitant to attend an event?  You can still participate by choosing “Takeout” on your order and you will be given a very special lunch for pickup. You will still be helping the agencies and the restaurants, too.

Reservations for each event close 10 days prior to the luncheon date. Note: Guests who wish to be seated together should place a combined order with a shared “Party Name” to guarantee that they are at the same location. 

Here is part of the adventure:  your location is secret until a week before the luncheon when you will receive a personalized invitation from the chef with all the details.

If Are You Ready For an

Adventure in 2022?

Last year’s Culinary Adventure was a huge success and we are proud to bring you another year of unique experiences. Guests will find out where their luncheon is located when they receive an email from their Culinary Adventure Chef a week before the event.  The 20 participating chefs are already working hard to create a unique menu and an interactive experience that will make this a very special day.

These luncheons sold out last year so make sure to gather your group together and reserve as soon as possible.  If you wish to attend more than one luncheon date, please use a separate transaction for each date.
