For the last 13 years our Annual Culinary Challenge, (a signature event for IIDA) has been one of our company’s most favored events. Some of the Bay Area’s Best Designers volunteer their time to prepare dishes for this annual philanthropic occasion. Every year all proceeds from the challenge are donated to a chosen charity or organization. This year all proceeds will go to HomeFirst. Formerly EHC LifeBuilders, HomeFirst is an organization that focuses on helping those without homes in Santa Clara County. In business since 1980, they’ve been successful in eliminating barriers to housing and stability to everyone they serve, which includes more than 4,000 adults, veterans, families with children, and youth each year.
The popularity of the event and its overall structure has grown substantially in the last 13 years. Although the challenge can get highly competitive between teams, we enjoy the friendly competition because it’s all for a greater cause. The dishes prepared by each team will be judged by a panel of impartial experts. All teams will be judged on taste, closest to theme and presentation. Meal categories will consist of Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert. The excitement for the Culinary Challenge continues to grow as the date gets closer.
