Each year, our local Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for over 2,500 families with critically ill children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando. It was not long ago that parents were sleeping in their cars or in chairs in the waiting room and it is no small reminder that many in our community are just one missed paycheck or illness away from poverty.
On March 2, the charity hosted its annual Appetite for the Arches event, where Central Florida’s top chefs from renowned restaurants and resorts showcased their skills by creating high end dishes using McDonald’s ingredients.
This year, the organizers brought Appetite for the Arches to a whole new level with a gala style event inside one of the grand ballrooms at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort.
The chefs truly brought their culinary A-game to the event, crafting dishes such as a “Big Mac” inspired Gyoza dumpling (Domu) with pickles and big mac sauce, as well as hashbrowns and pork belly (Luke’s).
