Battle of the Chefs

It’s your chance to be the chef in a battle to create a great dish! 

This year, Battle of the Chefs is coming to your house as we are going virtual! Join Project PAVE and two-time Golden Ladle winner, nationally recognized Chef David Bondarchuck as he leads you through a cooking lesson for one of his tastiest dishes. 

Join us on Zoom on Thursday, October 8th from 5:30-7 PM. The event will feature a 45-minute cooking lesson with Chef David! Your ticket includes the cooking lesson and a prep kit filled with some of the non-perishable recipe items, a shopping list, and Chef David’s recipe. Upgrade to the VIP package and you’ll score a video from a local mixologist showing you how to make a cocktail that pairs with your recipe and we’ll add some of the non-alcoholic drink ingredients to your prep kit! 

We will also still play heads or tails for your chance to win a “Stock your Liquor Cabinet” basket and have a silent auction filled with fun mystery boxes filled with gift cards and other awesome items to bring some joy to your social distancing!

Don’t want to cook? No problem! You can watch David cook and enjoy a fun evening with Daybreak host Chris Parente returning to emcee and keep us laughing from our homes! 

All proceeds benefit Project PAVE’s work to end violence by empowering youth to build healthy relationships. PAVE provides therapy and family support to youth victims of violence, violence prevention classes to middle and high school students, healthy masculinity education, and youth educator peer leadership programming to more than 3,000 young people, parents, and educators each year! During the pandemic, PAVE has continued to provide virtual therapy and violence prevention education classes as well as providing more than $15,000 in rent and grocery emergency assistance to our client families in need of extra support.
