On November 11th, 2013, join the iconic José Andrés and Carla Hall for the 10th Anniversary of DC Central Kitchen’s premier fundraising event, the Capital Food Fight. All proceeds benefit DC Central Kitchen.

In celebration of the event’s 10th anniversary, Duff Goldman (The Food Network’s Ace of Cakes) will host the event’s first-ever High Stakes Cakes competition featuring four top local cake decorators that will be judged by the audience. The names of these chefs are to be announced.

The event will also feature a live, on-stage battle with top local chefs to be judged by a panel of culinary celebrities, including James Beard Award-winners Tom Colicchio (Bravo’s Top Chef), Rick Bayless (PBS’ Mexico: One Plate at a Time), Todd English (PBS’ Food Trip with Todd English), and Art Smith (Cookbook author and owner of Art & Soul restaurant). Facing off this year are Erik Bruner-Yang (Toki Underground/Maketto), Bertrand Chemel (2941 Restaurant), Spike Gjerde (Woodberry Kitchen/Artifact Coffee), and Anthony Lombardo (1789 Restaurant).

In addition to the live battle, attendees can sample tastes from 75 top local restaurants, including Barmini, Béarnaise, Blue Duck Tavern, Del Campo, Equinox, Good Stuff Eatery, Jaleo, Kaz Sushi Bistro, Le Diplomate, Oyamel, Ris, The Source, Toki Underground, Vermilion, and many more!

This year celebrates the 10th anniversary of the fundraising event, which has raised over $2,000,000 for DC Central Kitchen. Last year’s sold-out event brought nearly 1,200 attendees. Tickets are on sale now. For the latest news on Capital Food Fight, follow on Twitter @DCCKFoodFight or at
