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.”

The Chef & Shaker Challenge has raised over $10,000 in charitable donations in its previous three years. A portion of ticket sales plus each winning chef’s $250 prize money is donated to Cooking With Kids and Santa Fe Youth Shelters & Family Services on behalf of their restaurants. A live auction, hosted by Tony Abou-Ganim raises money for the Helen David Relief Fund.
