Thursday, September 6 – THE Culinary Competition
A collection of Pittsburgh's finest chefs will share their favorite recipes in an all-out competition for coveted "Dish of the Year" honors. The event blends a scrumptious menu, cocktails, music, dancing, and a silent auction into an elegant fundraiser.
Last year more than 1,000 guests sampled 35 different dishes and danced the night away under the stars to the sounds of No Bad Ju Ju. This year we have even more participating restaurants. A panel of celebrity and culinary judges will taste and critique each dish and award prizes for the best in several categories including "Dish of the Year." Cuisine and cocktails are the spotlight of this fun event, but the real winner will be Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation who will receive 100% of the proceeds in the fight against prematurity.
