The Culinary & Cocktail Clash

The restaurant battle will return to Southern Califonria on Augsust 30! In the Culinary competition, restaurant teams work with a teen sous chef to create the ultimate taco! Of course, teams must use special ingredients like a Coca-Cola product. In the Cocktail competition (no students), teams will shake up one-of-a-kind Tito’s creations at our reception for teams and sponsors.
