All Hail Caesar! 34th Annual Caesar Salad Houston’s Longest Running Culinary Event
September 27 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The 34th Annual Caesar Salad Competition, set for September 27, 2018 is certain to be a “toss up” for awards given to chefs who present their versions of one of the world’s most popular salads. Acknowledged as the longest- running culinary event in Houston, it is always a boisterous evening featuring 20 of the area’s top chefs and great twists on a classic dish, wine and beers. The event, hosted by Food & Beverage Managers Association of Houston, also will feature a silent auction.
The Caesar Salad Competition was originally created by Chef Randy Fournier and Master Sommelier Guy Stout and formalized after friendly bets as to whose salad was the best. Over 34 years, the event has grown to include awards in four categories: Best Classic, Best Presentation, Most Creative and the coveted People’s Choice.
A partial list of the 2018 restaurant participants are as follows: 1600 Bar + Grille at Hilton Americas-Houston, El Meson, Eric’s Restaurant at Hilton University of Houston, Hilton Galveston Island Resort, Karbach Restaurant & Patio, Le Bistro at Culinary Institute LeNôtre, Marriott Marquis, Promenade at The Hilton Post Oak , Quattro at Four Seasons Hotel Houston, San Luis Resort & Spa, Sud Italia, The Remington at The St. Regis Houston, Topgolf Spring, University of Houston – Alumni Team and Westin Houston Downtown.
This year’s Caesar Salad Competition will put 20 chefs in a heated competition for bragging rights. The event will be held at The University of Houston Hilton Hotel, Conrad Ballroom from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.
