October 8 will be an evening filled with celebrity chefs, small plates and drinks from some of the District’s top restaurants and dramatic competition between some of DC’s top chefs – and it’s all for a good cause.
This coming Monday is the annual Capital Food Fight for DC Central Kitchen, hosted by Chef Jose Andres and Anthony Bourdian at the Ronald Reagan Building (1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW). And as Jane Alonso points out, it’s going to be a “Chefomania.”
Here’s what you can expect:
- A number of celebrity chefs and food personalities will be in attendance, including Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi, Bizarre Foods’ Andrew Zimmern and The Chew’s Carla Hall
- Local chefs will compete for the title of Food Fight champion. The battling chefs include Jeffrey Buben from Vidalia/Bistro Bis, Enzo Fargione from Elisir, Guillermo Pernot from Cube Libre and Adam Sobel from Bourbon Steak.
- Food and drink from more than 75 area restaurants will be available to sample.
- An auction will close down the evening’s event.
Tickets are $200 and are available online.
