Chefs and culinary students from local colleges and the Dallas Independent School District will compete against each other in the first ever Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute (DHWI) cook-off.

“The DHWI cook-off event is a creative way to engage various levels of culinary interest from high school students considering culinary arts as a career; to college students honing their skills for the workforce; to professionals willing to share their craft, and at the same time, compete in a fun and exciting event,” said DHWI President Charles Bell in an email.

There’s the high school competition (creative cupcakes using alternative sugars), the collegiate challenge (dishes made with avocados), and the professional chef challenge (creating a “culinary masterpiece” with curry). Judges for the competition include David Scalise, executive chef of the Hilton and celebrity chef Darren McGrady (former chef to British royalty and U.S. politicians). The event benefits DHWI, which is the cornerstone of Baylor’s Southern Sector Initiative.

The event takes place on April 9 from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Latino Cultural Center. Click here for more information.
