Hadassah Greater Atlanta is hosting a cooking competition, “Almost Chopped,” in January and needs home cooks to sign up as chef-testants by Thursday, Aug. 31.

The event, scheduled for Jan. 21, will raise money for the awareness, research and treatment of debilitating neurological diseases such as ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.

Nominate yourself or another person by sending an email with contact information and a note about why you or that other person would be a good candidate to atlanta@hadassah.org. Please put “Chef-testant” in the subject line.

Four teams of two chef-testants will compete in two rounds of cooking. The challenge is for the chef-testants to take the baskets filled with mystery ingredients, along with the tools provided, to create something that will wow the judges, who are some of Atlanta’s top chefs.
