CHEF & SHAKER CHALLENGE
$90+tax Online Tickets Available NOW! $100+tax at the door, day-of event, if available
The Chef & Shaker Challenge returns on Saturday, June 2, 7-10 pm. Sixteen chef-bartender teams from acclaimed restaurants in Santa Fe and Albuquerque present their food-and-cocktail pairings.
Guests vote for “People’s Choice” and a professional panel selects “Judge’s Pick.” A portion of ticket sales plus each winning chef’s $250 prize money is donated to Cooking With Kids on behalf of their restaurants. The 2017 winning chefs Marc Quinones of Mas at Hotel Andaluz, and David Gaspar de Alba of Artichoke Café return to defend their titles.
In addition to fun, food, cocktails and live entertainment, a live auction raises money for the Helen David Relief Fund. The Chef & Shaker Challenge raised over $7000 in charitable donations in its previous two years. (Tickets $90)
