The Culinary & Cocktail Clash
Restaurant brands will battle it out in two fiery competitions – culinary and cocktail – on August 7 in Irvine, CA! In the Culinary Clash, restaurants are paired with a student sous chef to create a menu item using required ingredients. In the Cocktail Clash, restaurants shake up craft cocktails featuring Tito’s or Don Julio (no students involved).
This is the California Restaurant Foundation’s biggest fundraiser to support high school culinary arts programs.
