Good Eats : Sac Chef Challenge

This past Saturday, Rob's Mom was lovely enough to buy us tickets to the Sacramento Chef Challenge event, benefitting InAlliance. It was an amazing event with a ton of food, a chef cook-off, cupcake bake-off and wine/beer tastings. At the door we were given a bag of goodies, including a wine glass and a wristband allowing us 5 beer/wine tastings. Needless to say, my wristband was well used!

It was my first time attending an event like this and it definitely won't be my last! So many yummy things were had and my favorites were Shock Top raspberry wheat beer, It's a Grind black tea sweetened with peach, the Dynamite salmon roll from Pyramid Alehouse, the strawberry shortcake cupcake from Vanilla Bean and the Lucero lemon olive oil.

Ladies, if you don't find yourself enjoying beer you have to try Shock Top raspberry wheat beer. It's delicious! Definitely a summer win.

The best part of the event is that the proceeds went to InAlliance, a nonprofit that supports people with developmental disabilities. Never has giving back felt so good :). Thanks Delia for the tickets and InAlliance for a wonderful fundraiser!

Have you ever been to an event like this? Do you like doing different summer weekend festivals?

And I linked up to the Instagram blog hop with A Night Owl, Let it Be Beautiful and A Pink Elephant, join me!

  1. Dude. I want to eat ALL of this! I prefer the Shock Top original, myself! I tried the raspberry and was super excited about it but was a little disappointed. If I go flavored, I LOVE Sam Adams Cherry Wheat!! YUM!

      Ooo Sam Adams Cherry, I'm def gonna have to try that one! The Shock Top we had was from a tap so maybe it was just extra good? I always prefer tap to bottle! Haha
