There can never be too many cooks in the kitchen at this event!

Dozens of chefs from eateries along Fifth Avenue will again come together to showcase their cuisines at a mouth-watering festival on April 10.

And this years Taste of Fifth, which will transform Park Slope’s Grand Prospect Hall into a grub hub featuring bites from more than 45 restaurants, packs even more flavor with the addition of several newcomers — one of whom said he’s thrilled to partake in the belly-filling bash.

“I’m so excited to show what we can do, and hope everyone enjoys it,” said Laurent Chavenet, the owner of Parisian-style bakery Le French Tart at 579 Fifth Ave.

Chavenet — who said he plans to serve up meat-and-cheese spreads, quiche, and mini tarts at the festival — will join other first-time food slingers including Caribbean cafe Negril BK and so-called Italian-fusion eatery Il Sogno Secondo, the sister spot of a similar restaurant out on bucolic Staten Island, according to a spokeswoman for the event’s organizer, local-commerce cheerleader the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District.

Hungry Brooklynites who want to plan ahead can buy tickets online for $60 — five bucks less than they’ll cost at the door the day of the event.

And no matter how they are purchased, all tickets come with admission to a “special surprise” the spokeswoman said will grace the hall’s ballroom that night, and $20 of each sale will be donated to a local organization of the buyer’s choice, including The Old Stone House museum, the Park Slope Civic Council, culture-promoter the Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and nearby public schools.

Taste of Fifth at Grand Prospect Hall (263 Prospect Ave. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3341680). April 10. 6:30–9:30 pm; $60 in advance, $65 at door.
