Chef's Challenge 2022 - Basil Bites for Busy Gardeners!!

Each year we invite local chefs to participate in a challenge to create a recipe for us with a particular Basil theme and this year it's our gardens! 

Our Culinary Challenge pits the creative energies of area chefs against one another - utilizing the freshest produce from local farms and gardens to create the best tasting bites you can get anywhere!!


Voting - with your wallet - for your favorite recipe will help raise funds for this year's charity

The Children's Center San Antonio


Watch this space to see who our celebrity chefs will be...but most importantly come with your family and enjoy a yummy and interesting day at the Pearl...
