MIDTOWN — Some of the world’s top chefs will be whipping up their best dishes for a charity fundraiser at Rockefeller Center Plaza next Monday.

The event is a fundraiser for the city’s Citymeals-on-Wheels program, which brings food to homebound elderly.

The list of star chefs include Nobu Matsuhisa, from Nobu, Daniel Boulud, from Daniel, and Craig Hopson from Le Cirque. Their culinary creations will be available at tasting stations throughout the plaza.

The gala event — with tickets starting at $600 each — hope to raise $700,000 for the preparation and delivery of 117,000 meals.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m., and will also feature live music and dancing.
