Chef Jamie G of Bowie, Md., has been added to the line up of personalities who will be “throwing down” in the upcoming Celebrity Chef Throw Down charity event on April 8, 2017. The event is an outdoor celebrity cook-off that is pitting news teams from stations WTKR and WVEC in cooking competition to benefit the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.
Chef Jamie G specializes in creating upscale comfort meals for entertaining. With 20 years of food service experience and 7 years of professional kitchen experience, she also has appeared on Food network cooking competitions.

Only one news team can dominate and bring home the title of BEST COOK! Teams will create several dishes using only ingredients provided in a mystery basket. Each team has a set amount of time to work their magic before the judges cast their votes. In addition, there will be live entertainment, a cash bar, silent auction and heavy hors d’oeuvres, so bring your appetite.
Confirmed personalities include WTKR’s meteorologists, April Loveland, Dominic Brown, traffic reporter/co-anchor Kristen Crowley, WVEC’s anchor, Andre Senior, meteorologists Timothy Pandajis and Iisha Scott. Sponsors will announce special guest judges the day of the event.
Beckett says, “This type of event has never been done before in Hampton Roads. My vision was to build a dynamic team to bring my vision alive. So I partnered with celebrity Chef Jacoby Ponder and Shannon Gibson, Philanthropist and owner of Charmisey events to help me put together a wow factor event.”
