Wedgewood Weddings specializes in creating dream weddings – and what wedding is complete without a delicious meal! We are participating in the 2017 Culinary Clash to inspire young people to join the culinary industry and make their own dreams come true.

This year Wedgewood will be participating in Culinary Clash: Battle Los Angeles 2017.  The Culinary Clash is a competition where corporate chefs and executives are paired with culinary students from ProStart – a great program that trains high school students in the culinary arts.

Representing Team Wedgewood will be Chef Justin Kerr from Wedgewood Weddings The Retreat and Regional Manager/Managing Partner Roman Cota.  Roman, Justin & their student partner will have to create an amuse-bouche and an entrée is just 30 minutes.

There is also a Cocktail Clash which will feature bartender extraordinaire and Wedgewood Sequoia Mansion GM, Matt Martinez.

The biggest and best prize for this event is “The Purse” – which goes to the team that does the best job of fundraising.  Help support both Team Wedgewood and the amazing ProStart program with your tax-deductible donation.  The young students we support today could be the Wedgewood Chefs of tomorrow.

This lively cooking competition between restaurant brands is held during the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo. Guests enjoy tasty appetizers and beverages while rooting for their favorite restaurant team. Corporate chefs and executives are paired with a ProStart student to prepare an amuse-bouche and an entrée in 30 minutes using only two butane burners.

The exciting event will pit restaurant heavyweights against each other for bragging rights and the ultimate prize – The Purse. 

Help your team win The Purse by making a tax-deductible donation to support high school culinary arts education!
