Chefs Vie for Most Creative Hors d’oeuvres
And the Winners Are …..
Ten restaurants competed for four awards at the RiverArts annual fundraiser ArtsAlive. The creative chefs designed artsy, fabulous hors d’oeuvres that resulted in a very difficult judging process for the group of ”foodies” who had to choose the following winners:
Most Creative: K-B Kitchen School, Chef Kevin McKinney
Most Colorful: JR’s Watermark Grill at Mears Great Oak, Chef David Kneller
Most Artsy: Luisa’s, Chef Vincenzo Assante
Most Delicious: The Kitchen, Chef Steve Quigg
RiverArts president Mary Jo McCulloch thanked the restaurants and businesses that helped make ArtsAlive a success. “Without the generous support of this community, RiverArts could not run the multi-faceted programs we offer. We thank everyone who donated their talents, their wares and their time to ensure that RiverArts has the resources to continue to give back to this community.”
The sumptuous creations were judged by a crack panel of artistic foodies. Immediately after the photo shoot of the awards, ArtsAlive guests were able to savor for themselves these culinary masterpieces.
Thanks to these generous restaurants and culinary talents for their support of ArtsAlive.
