Events: 11th Annual Embassy Chef Challenge this April!

TCMA, Events DC, and Cultural Tourism DC are dishing up the 11th Annual Embassy Chef Challenge on April 2nd! Returning to the atrium at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, the Embassy Chef Challenge is bringing together chefs from 30 different embassies to showcase delicious dishes from around the globe.

Join me at the annual fundraiser that gives DC foodies the opportunity to sample signature international delicacies created by world-class embassy chefs. The participating chefs will present small plates showcasing their country’s delicious eats and battle in DC’s Premier International Culinary Competition. 

A panel of celebrity chefs and food critics will select the winner of the Judge's Choice Award, while guests cast a ballot for the People's Choice Award at the event. Rounding out the evening are live and silent auctions, featuring preeminent items steeped in international flavor, incredible live music and performances, lots of dancing, and of course plentiful rounds of cocktails! This is one of the best DC foodie events of the year, allowing attendees to mingle with celebrity chefs, food critics and members of the largest diplomatic community in the world. Can you get any more “DC” than that?
