'Real Men Cook' for charity, Father's Day
June 18, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- For 22 years, Chicago-area men have come together to cook and raise money for charities.
This weekend, you can experience the "Real Men Cook" (link: http://realmencook.com/index.html) event for yourself!
Quentin Love and Walter Cannon joined us in our ABC7 studio to share their secret recipes. Love runs the Quench Restaurant chain. He has been involved with "Real Men Cook" for about 10 years. Love also is the CEO and founder of the "I LOVE FOOD" Group.
Cannon is a mortgage broker and single dad who has been with Real Men Cook for 16 years. He is best known for his "Stop that Fighting in Line" Shrimp and Broccoli Casserole, named so because people once began to push and shove while waiting in his line.
