Obama Victory Fund 2012 – Cooking Competition & Food Tasting Chefs for Obama, South End

Getting ready for another Tuesday night curled up on the couch with a glass of wine watching NCIS, Glee and the Biggest Loser simultaneously? (Oh, that’s just us? Awkward…)

Can you think of any better way to spend a Tuesday night then sampling food from some of Boston’s best restaurants while enjoying a libation or two surrounded by Boston’s food-loving community? No? I didn’t think so.

Come out next Tuesday to support the President’s re-election efforts! Chefs for Obama, a group of 14 cooks doing a private cooking competition and tasting, will be putting their best plate forward just for you. The competition will be judged by Governor Deval Patrick, First Lady Diane Patrick and award-winning Chef Ming Tsai (BMH Review of Blue Ginger). Each chef will have a table set up with their food and guests will be able to peruse/taste as much as they please. Which chef do you want to win?

The fundraiser will be held at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts. It is a beautiful historic venue in the Boston’s stylish South End and more than appropriate for this fun foodie event. Check it out, we promise it will be a great time.
