Brainfood Grill-Off


Recommended Posts

We need your support!

Brainfood is a non-profit youth development organization with locations in the Columbia Heights and Chinatown neighborhoods of Washington, DC. Using food as a tool, Brainfood builds life skills and promotes healthy living in a fun and safe environment.

Brainfood will be holding its second annual Grill-Off on Thursday, June 12, 2008, at the Decatur House (on Lafayette Square) from 6:30-9:30pm.

The Grill-Off is a cooking competition. Each team (5 people plus 1 Brainfood student and 1 professional chef from a local restaurant) will receive a surprise pantry and market basket of ingredients and cooking tools and will have one hour to create a culinary masterpiece. The Grill-Off will be judged by a panel of local chefs and celebrities, restaurant owners, and Brainfood students.

This year in addition to the Grill-Off competition, there will be wine tastings, signature Brainfood cocktails, a silent auction, cooking demos, and much, much more.

How you can get involved in the Grill-Off:
