Rockford’s Best Dish
Lifescape Community Services, Inc.[/caption]With apologies to Dr. Pepper, I'm a foodie, she's a foodie, he's a foodie...wouldn't you like to be a foodie, too?
For purposes of clarification, a foodie is someone with a great interest in gourmet food and drink, or new techniques and trends in cooking.
Yeah, there's that. Add to it the fact that I'm a veteran Food Network watcher, love to try new things in the culinary department, and think very highly of our friends at Lifescape Community Services, and you've got the recipe for a great evening that also happens to benefit a first-rate organization.
Hope you can find some time in your busy schedule to join us Thursday night at Tebala Shrine Temple, 7910 Newburg Rd, from 6-9. I'm lucky enough to be one of three judges tasked with determining which local chefs and restaurateurs are serving up Rockford's best appetizers, entrees, and desserts. It's a thankless job, but someone has to do it.
Thursday night, you'll sample offerings from:
- LUCHA CANTINA
- BACKYARD GRILL & BAR
- BICKFORD HOUSE
- E-Z DINNERS
- AMICI ITALIAN GRILL
- SIMPLY DELICIOUS CUPCAKES
- CRIMSON POINTE
- KATE'S PIE SHOP & RECORD STORE
- THUNDER BAY GRILLE
