Little Chef, Big Chef dinner partners local kids with top chefs to benefit Louie’s Kids

Five chefs from some of Charleston’s most popular restaurants will compete Tuesday to prepare the best five-course cuisine — not with their full staff, but with the help of one pint-sized side-kick. The competition is the seventh annual Little Chef, Big Chef dinner hosted by Louie’s Kids, a local nonprofit aimed at getting kids to make changes in their lifestyles to improve their overall health and wellbeing. Each year, the organization pairs one of its kids with a local chef who spend weeks crafting a recipe and strategy for the cook-off. Chefs this year are: Amanee Neirouz and Nate Whiting of Four Ninety-Two, Jason Stanhope of FIG, Jacques Larson of the Wild Olive and the Obstinate Daughter and Kevin Johnson of The Grocery. At the dinner, each course is served with a special wine or beer pairing. Proceeds benefit the local organization.

When: 7-10 p.m. Monday

Where: Four Ninety-Two, 492 King St.

Price: $175
