How would you like a chance to prove your cooking creativity while helping out a good cause? The Martha O'Bryan Center is hosting an amateur cooking competition to support a "food desert" initiative in Nashville's poorest neighborhood. Watch your friends and neighbors "throw down" for a chance to win fabulous prizes.
Amateurs will be paired with professional chefs to create a meal using the ingredients that can be found in a typical basket of food offered to neighborhood families. Contestants will be encouraged to concentrate on nutritional content as well as taste as they plan their menus.
Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres while watching the action and there will also be complimentary wine and beer for you. There will be a silent auction showcasing the work of young photographers who spent six weeks documenting their food stories, including what, where and when they eat.
When: 5-8 p.m., Saturday, April 10
Where: Martha O'Bryan Center, 711 South Seventh Street, Nashville 37206
Tickets: $40 in advance, $45 at the door
