The Words


Signature Event to Feature Competition Between Teams of Chefs

The Chefs for Habitat 2009 Culinary Challenge, a premier event for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County, will be held at the Bordeleau Vineyards and Winery in Eden, MD, starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19th.

This one-of-a-kind event, sponsored by the M&T Foundation, First Shore Federal, and the UMES Foundation, will feature seven teams representing each of the local culinary schools in a competition to prepare the most highly rated meal. A panel of judges, led by Chef Jim Hughes, recognized by the James Beard Foundation, will determine the winning team.

The competing entries will be created from a basket of mystery ingredients. To add to the fun and frivolity, team coaches will take part in a skills challenge and local celebrities will compete in a Bastille Day type waiter’s race.

Tickets are $60 per person, or $100 per couple, and include the thrill of competition, drinks, heavy hors d’oeuvres from Local Owners Restaurant Association (L.O.R.A.) and live music by Smokin’ Section, The Zen Monkeys, and Tear the Roof Off. The Eastern Shore Runners’ Club will also be hosting a 5K run/walk on-site the following Saturday, September 26.

A Christian housing ministry, Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people of all faiths to make ownership of decent, affordable homes a matter of conscience and action. Since its beginning in 1987, Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County has built and sold 51 homes to deserving, qualifying families in Wicomico County.
