Annual Culinary Challenge for a Cause To benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Rhode Island Chapter


November, 2018] Do you love the show "Top Chef," watching the food network challenge, or trying a new restaurant? Then you will love our annual event at the Alzheimer's Association, Rhode Island Chapter, called "Culinary Challenge for a Cause." Chefs from Rhode Island's own assisted living communities will participate in the ultimate cook off to see who is the assisted living "Top Chef." And who will be the judge you might ask? You! Plus an exciting panel of celebrity judges!

Here is a brief preview of some of our celebrity panel. WPRI 12 and FOX Providence’s multiple Emmy-nominated Anchor and Reporter, Mike Montecalvo. Mike has helped raise millions of dollars for local charities, including the Alzheimer’s Association of Rhode Island. We are also excited to have Chef Frank Terranova, from NBC 10’s “Sunday Bruch” with Mario Hilario. Chef Terranova was also host of “Cooking with Class,” a daily television cooking segment on NBC 10 for 21 years and former instructor at Johnson & Wales University’s College of Culinary Arts. Our panelists continue with Jamie Coelho of Rhode Island Monthly, Chef Gary Comella of the University Club and Paul Kettle of PVDonuts and more!
The public is invited to this festive affair on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, to sample delectable gourmet cuisine and to cast a ballot for your favorite chef. Doors open promptly at 5:30 p.m. for the cocktail reception, then at 6:15 p.m. the chef stations open for sampling by the general public, and visual display judging. Later that evening, the award presentation will take place when the celebrity judges determine the "Top Chef," based on presentation, taste, and creativity. Tickets are $35 per person in advance, $30 for parties of 10 or more or $50 at the door. You will not want to miss this event! RSVP to 1-800-272-3900 or visit www.alz.org/ri.
