Tickets are available in January, $20 per person in advance, $25 at the door! Cash or check ONLY at door!
Fast moving and fun, the Chef’s Challenge is a competition where local chefs have limited time to create a winning dish, mostly using ingredients commonly available at the Community Food Bank.
Just as Community Food Bank customers must prepare meals for their households based on what is available from our pantry on a given day, the competing chefs must also prepare a meal from a pre-stocked pantry. In addition, a mystery ingredient from the food bank pantry will be revealed just before the competition, and that ingredient must be featured prominently in the dish.
The event features three local chefs: returning competitor Chef Will Wohlfeil of South Fork, Chef Lee Wilkins, Northwest Area Manager for Greek House Chefs, and Chef Howard Campbell of WSU’s Southside Cafe.
Their dishes will be judged by local celebrity judges Executive Chef Joan Swensen, Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson, WSU Executive Chef Jamie Callison, and last year’s Challenge winner, Chef Matthew Lasof! The winning chef is awarded the Golden Spatula and bragging rights as a Community Food Champion for the year!
Join us for some good fun and entertainment, all to support the Community Food Bank & Kitchen!
