Local amateur bakers will get a chance to compete and show off their culinary skills on Saturday, October 6 at the Annual Chocolate Bake-Off as part of the Suisun Waterfront Art Wine and Chocolate Festival.
“Our Bake-Off allows local chefs to compete for bragging rights to their friends as well as prizes. We like to call it the “Iron Chef of Chocolate,” said Jeff Baggett, President of the Fairfield Suisun Rotary Club, the sponsor organization.
Culinary treats will be judged by professionals in the areas of chocolate pies, cakes, candies, cookies or artwork with special categories for youth (13-18) and children (5-12).
Prizes are donated by local businesses and include hotel rooms, free meals, and spa services.
Entries will be accepted from 9:30 AM-11:30 AM. Judging will begin at 11:30 AM and winners announced at 1 PM.
Entry forms and rules are available online at www.suisunwaterfront.com. Entry forms will also be available at the Rotary booth on October 6.
Entry fees for the Chocolate Bake-off are $10. All funds are donated back to community non-profits such as Assist A Grad, NorthBay Hospice, and Tools of Learning.
The Art, Wine & Chocolate Festival showcases confections, unique art, and wine tasting from numerous local wineries, plus unique arts & crafts, and live music.
