Iron Skillet Cook Off 2018

On October 29th, 2018, WCC was joined by some of New York City’s bravest, along with a phenomenal line up of chefs, local celebrities and friends as it celebrated its annual Iron Skillet®  Cook Off to honor, support, and protect ready responders. From delicious dishes created by our astounding firefighter and chef teams, to craft beers provided by Brooklyn Brewery, and passionate remarks by Shelli Sonstein, this year’s cook off was certainly one to remember!
