 This event has been postponed and rescheduled for September 15.

The Arline & Henry Schwartzman Courtyard at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital

1 Robert Wood Johnson Place, New Brunswick, NJ

CHOPeration pairs chefs and doctors from our local restaurants and health systems to compete against each other in the culinary arena.


Each team of chefs and doctors will work from the same “recipe box” with equal prep time to create a dish that includes a “secret ingredient” to be judged by the audience.


Guests will enjoy food, drinks, interactive activities and an auction to raise funds and awareness for the Community Liver Alliance. 

Tickets can be purchased below:

General Admission - $50

RWJ Employees/Med Staff - $25

Group of 8 Discount - $350 

Featuring special guest Robyn Almodovar as seen on 'Chopped' and Hell's Kitchen'.
