Nineteen chefs from Del Mar’s finest restaurants — with partners such as Young’s Market Company, Venissimo Cheese and Silver Oak Cellars — will wine and dine guests at the 16th Annual Meet the Chefs of Del Mar event, Sunday, April 22, 1-4 p.m. at the Hilton Del Mar, 15575 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar.

The event benefits Casa de Amparo, a San Diego leader in the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect. “April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month,” said committee chair Laura McPhee. “Guests love being able to sample signature dishes from Del Mar’s finest restaurants all in one place complemented by premium wines. Best of all, the event supports a great cause and a great organization that has made such a difference to children and families in our community who are affected by or at risk of abuse or neglect.”

“We are so grateful for the many volunteers who make Meet the Chefs of Del Mar so successful,” said Keely Tidrow, development manager. “Our committee alone is over 20 energetic and enthusiastic supporters who are already hard at work and, of course, it’s our wonderful chefs and partners who make this such a much-anticipated event each year.”

Tickets for Meet the Chefs of Del Mar are $150 per person. A special VIP Reception kicks off the event from 12:15 to 1 p.m. Tickets at $200 include admission to the Chefs Food & Wine Tastings.

Tickets are available at or by calling 760-754-5500 or email
