Former Bengals Anthony Munoz and chef Jean-Robert De Cavel represent Cincy at Taste of NFL

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ohio will be well-represented at a Super Bowl weekend charity fundraising event in New York City Saturday night.
 
It's called the Taste of the NFL. Chefs from NFL cities are invited to prepare their signature dishes to benefit hometown food pantries serving the poor.
 
The Cleveland representatives are chef/restaurant owner Rocco Whalen and Al "Bubba" Baker, a former Browns lineman.
 
The Cincinnati representatives are former Bengals tackle Anthony Munoz and chef Jean-Robert De Cavel.
 
Whalen tells the Northeast Ohio Media Group that last year's event raised enough money for the Cleveland Foodbank for 37,400 hot meals.
 
Tickets run $700 apiece, or $9,000 for a VIP table.
