Game of Chefs
Wed, Jul 26, 2017 from 6pm - 9:30pm
Join us for Seattle Good Business Network’s first annual “Game of Chefs,” where Dine Around Seattle and Seattle Made chefs face off in a healthy competition to create the tastiest and most creative dishes from a pantry of Seattle Made products, plus a supply of locally sourced produce and staples from Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market.
The evening will feature delectable dishes by our chefs and our event partner, Madres Kitchen - plus a signature cocktail from OOLA, and Seattle Made beer and wine. Local celebrity judges and audience favorites will choose Seattle's 'top chef'!
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the makers and chefs, and pick up some Seattle Made treats - all to benefit the programs of Seattle Good Business Network.

When you slip into Belle Epicurean you get the unique opportunity to experience the magic of Paris and the joy of fantastic French cuisine, in the comfort of the rainy city we all know & love. Carolyn holds the distinction of being the first female American to graduate from Le Cordon Bleu Paris with the top honor in Le Grande Diplôme.
