The HALL Cabernet Cookoff will return for a sixth year on April 25 featuring an all-star line-up of both Napa Valley and San Francisco-based chef teams. Bringing together foodies and wine for a culinary pairing challenge, chef teams will compete before a panel of all-star judges including Ken Frank, Virginie Boone, Ian White and Lars Kronmark, for a local charity of their choice by creating small bites paired with HALL 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. All proceeds from ticket sales and 100 percent of donations made online and from sponsors will go directly to charities.
During the event, guests will be invited to taste farm-to-table dishes from each chef team paired with HALL wine and then vote on their favorite for the People’s Choice Award. “The Cabernet Cookoff is a fun way to experience great Napa Valley cuisine and wonderful wines while helping our community,” says vintner, Kathryn Walt Hall. “Everyone involved with this event including our generous sponsors, talented chef teams, enthusiastic non-profit organizations and the entire HALL and WALT staff all donate their time to create a spectacular day. Every year, everyone at the Cabernet Cookoff comes out a winner.”
The 2014 HALL Cabernet Cookoff drew more than 600 food and wine lovers for a sold out crowd and raised $66,000 for local charities. Last year’s winning chef teams included One Market Restaurant and Paula Le Duc Catering who took top honors for their selected charities, Napa Hospice & Adult Day Service and St. Helena Hospital Foundation.
