Chef's Challenge 2020 - Pair Up Your Basil !!

Each year we invite local chefs to participate in a challenge to create a recipe for us with a particular Basil theme.  In the recent past it has including Jenny Mattingsley from the Oblate Center; Fratello's Ristorante - Elizabeth Johnson from Pharm Table, Suzanne Parker from Powerhouse Bakery, Jeff Balfour from Southerleigh's and  Milissa Guerra. 

​This year it will be just as exciting!!

Parking is free as are all of the events.  Bring yourselves, your kids, your grand kids and have a great time!!

Most importantly,  our Guest Chefs will be there to help us raise money for this year's  Charity, which is the

Down's Syndrom Association of South Texas.  

Knowing how to lend the support and encouragement for children and parents through information and outreach in our community is important
