The DC Food & Beverage Collective (DCFBC) and The Tavern at Ivy City Smokehouse are pleased to host the 13th Annual DC Crab Cake Competition. An annual tradition designed to raise funds for culinary internships, scholarships, and educational programs.
The contest will pit eight of the area’s top chefs against one another in a crab cake showdown utilizing Department-verified Maryland blue crab. The winning chef’s restaurant will receive funds to support a culinary intern in its kitchen.
In addition to this “main event,” students from area culinary schools or programs will compete in their own crab cake competition. The winning student will be awarded a $500 scholarship to be used toward their studies.
Guests will have the opportunity to sample each of the chef contestants’ crab cakes, as well as an oyster bar, New England clam chowder station, and other passed appetizers for which Ivy City Smokehouse is known. Selected wines, beer, tax, and gratuity are included in the price of admission.
