‘Cooks With Collars’ Videos Show What’s for Dinner at the Parish When a Priest Puts on His Apron

February 2, 2022

When priests hang up their clerical robes, grab their aprons and head for their  kitchens, what’s cooking?

You can find out at www.CooksWithCollars.com, where the Diocese of Allentown has posted cooking videos from 35 priests as part of a friendly cooking competition called “Cooks With Collars.”

Here are some mouth-watering previews: Hungarian goulash, banana beer, Grandma’s Christmas Eve Soup, brownies cooked in a waffle maker, African Ugali, chicken tikka masala, and Scottish shortbread.

Proceeds of the competition go to Catholic Charities, and to each participating parish. Parishioners can vote for their favorite video by making a donation on the website.

We’re all very excited for a second serving of Cooks with Collars,” said Paul Acampora, Executive Director of Stewardship and Development at the Diocese.

“Cooks with Collars raises our spirits, connects our communities, and gives us great food for the body and for the soul,” he said.

The “Cooks With Collars” competition runs through March 1.
