That’s right, it’s time for Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres 2017 and Windsor Essex County’s top chefs from area restaurants and hospitality businesses will compete at one of Windsor’s most exciting food competitions in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex.
The 31st Annual Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres has been scheduled for Thursday, May 18, 2017 at Caesars Windsor.
For the last five years the new lounge party format has been a great success. No longer a sit down gala, the Battle has become an after business interactive networking event. An indoor food and drink festival! This event offers an opportunity for guests to schmooze with some of Windsor’s finest food and beverage establishments, while enjoying creative cuisine, drinks, networking, and supporting youth mentoring programs in Windsor and Essex County.
This year promises to be even bigger and better with another great evening full of fun, food, drinks and fundraising.
For the fourth year in a row the event will be held at Caesars Windsor in the Augustus Ballroom featuring a bigger venue to accommodate the popular demand of this event.
Tickets are $85 each and available for purchase online through SnapdWindsor.com
This year’s participants were officially announced at Walkerville Brewery on April 12, 2017.
All of last years winners are returning to defend their titles but they better watch out because some returning participants, including new ones, are aiming to tantalize your taste buds to dethrone them!
