The Culinary Arts Cook Off is a celebration of food, the arts, community and all the fabulous restaurants who participate. It is a fundraiser to support the arts core programming at Edmonton’s Mount Royal Elementary School. In reality, it’s so much more than that! It’s a culinary competition – chefs from local restaurants do what they do best – create amazing food! We challenge them to create a unique dish (we present a theme) that is then sold by the taste (one 4 ounce serving for $2).
We have hand crafted trophies for the winners plus the prestige of winning a one of a kind event! The winner of our Cook Off will qualify for the Canadian Food Championships!
While the tasting is in progress, we also host two fabulous auctions!
Silent Auction – with donations ranging from winery tours to soap to cupcakes!
Live Auction – complete with registered bidders, paddles and a volunteer auctioneer!
You can expect local art and unique handcrafted wares plus, there is always a few unexpected items too – concert tickets, electronics and more.
