American Fare is Charlie Palmer's first ever Celebration of American Regional Cuisine, teaming regional Charlie Palmer Group chefs with top Washington DC-area chefs and restaurants, designed to uncover the many layers of American cuisine in a fun, competitive event in the heart of Washington DC. Each team will create a unique American themed dish representative of their restaurant grouping and serve it to the 350 attendees of the event. Additionally, each team will collaborate to produce the best signature drink to pair with their dish to create the best food and beverage pairing.
Teams will compete and be judged by our esteemed panel of judges based on two factors: 1) Best "American" Dish and 2) Best "American" Food & Beverage Pairing. Attending guests will also have the opportunity to voice their opinion by taking part in the People's Choice vote. Event proceeds will benefit Share our Strength and the winning team's charity of choice.
