Enjoy the finest food at The Culinary Challenge this Saturday!


The Culinary Challenge is a cooking competition featuring four local celebrity chefs preparing 3 courses centered around mystery ingredients. Joining the competition is Chef Tim Condon of The Angry Cactus, Chef Virginia Dalbeck of Cork & Pig, Chef Jason Helfer of Peasant Village, and Chef Sergio Rico of JL Bar Ranch. Catering for the event will be provided by San Angelo Country Club Chef, Daniel Friedrich.

The Culinary Challenge has a purpose: it is an experience that gives attendees the best that San Angelo has to offer. They can expect an unforgettable cooking competition from their favorite chefs, excellent food to enjoy during the evening, and great entertainment throughout. In return, the proceeds from the evening benefit the artistic and educational programs of the San Angelo Symphony and provide critical funding to the Central High School Culinary Program.
