Common Threads’ Second Annual Cook-Off
September 27, 2012–Common Threads’ culinary fundraising event raised more than $34,000 to benefit health and nutritional education programs in Chicago to low-income youth and their families. Local chefs participated at Fulton’s on the River to create and serve their favorite cookout-themed dishes within four categories: In a Glass, On a Bun, In a Shell, or On a Stick. Guests sampled each dish and voted for the top in each category. The winning chefs of the night were: Michael Stewart of Roy’s Restaurant for In a Glass; Kevin Abshire of Due Lire Vino & Cucina for In a Shell; Sarah Grueneberg of Spiaggia for On a Stick; and Curtis Hawk of Zed 451 for On a Bun.
