Charity Cooking Competition!
Renowned restaurant and hotel chefs from across Northern Virginia will battle with award-winning caterers and a pioneer of the food truck revolution on May 10 for the honor of being crowned Heavyweight Champion of Dished 2018, the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce’s annual celebration of the region’s growing culinary prowess.
In this two-round charity competition hosted at The National Conference Center in Leesburg each skilled contestant will create an appetizer and entrée for our judges using a basket of mystery ingredients. Every chef will be provided a dedicated cooking station and access to a food pantry; competitors may only bring a set of knives, an 8-qt saucepan and a 12-inch skillet.
Dished 2018’s judges will award Heavyweight, Middleweight and Welterweight Champions titles to the three best chefs along with cash prizes for each winner’s chosen charity. Wine, beer, hors d'oeuvres and desserts will be available for attendees throughout this year’s Dished 2018 challenge and all profits from this exciting evening will be donated to local charitable organizations.

Graceful Care's cover photo
GraceFul Care is a small companion care agency that has been providing care for residents of Northern Virginia since 1995.
Pat Williams founded the agency in the memory of her own mother, Grace, who lived her life spreading joy, comfort, understanding, and laughter. As her mother aged, Pat recognized that there was a need in Northern Virginia for caregivers that could offer in-home companionship and assistance for aging mothers and fathers, when their children could not be there.
