Chefs representing embassies from around the world will show off their culinary skills in this fifth annual competition and gala, presented by Cultural Tourism DC.
The chefs will be creating hors d’oeuvres that showcase their country’s cuisine. These men and women usually serve only dignitaries and heads of state, so this is a great chance to sample some truly world-class fare.
A panel of celebrity judges, as well as the guests themselves, will determine the winner and present the coveted Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice Awards.
Local celebrity chef Carla Hall, finalist and “Fan Favorite” from Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars, will serve as a judge and guest auctioneer this year.
The annual benefit supports the free programs and events provided by Cultural Tourism DC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the arts and culture of Washington, DC.
