25 Chefs, 25 Farms and cocktails, beer and wine from Maryland’s finest!

Think Iron Chef + Battle of the Beverages – Maryland style! This one-of-a-kind foodie event is a culinary competition that pairs local farmers with the area’s most talented chefs to create original dishes that highlight the region’s wide abundance of local, fresh ingredients. We also showcase the talent of our local beverage purveyors – wine, beer, spirts, and craft cocktails. Each year 30 teams of farmers, chefs and mixologists work together to create dishes that are judged in several categories by a panel of judges as well as the event’s attendees.

This amazing night is the annual fundraiser for TasteWise Kids and its signature program, Days of Taste, a hands-on program that provides elementary school children with an introduction to the basic elements of taste, the importance of fresh food, and teaches them how food travels from farm to table.

Our 2019 event was held on Monday, September 23, 2019.
