The 2nd annual homegrown cook-off where you get to be the judge. Local farmers and area chefs whip up the tastiest competition of the year.
The premise of the event is simple, pair local farmers with local chefs. While the event is a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, we are also helping to create sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs, while reinforcing the movement of eating healthy which is something the March of Dimes believes in and promotes to women who are considering pregnancy.
With agriculture being such an important industry in Delaware, it is vital that we support our local farmers and for us to make sure that people know they can buy fresh, local produce right here – literally in their own back yard. It is also an important event that showcases the community’s commitment to our own environment and the success of our local growers.
The event itself will feature local farmers who will provide their product to chefs. New for 2013 is our partnership with Dogfish Head. Each Chef will be asked to incorporate a Dogfish beer into their dish. Attendees will then cast their vote for their favorite.
Included in the evening's festivities are silent and basket auctions.
Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
