Kugelis Cook-Off Contest Fundraiser
May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Craving kugelis? Then join us for a Kugelis Cook-Off Contest and taste kugelis from the best of Philadelphia’s Lithuanian-American community!
Tasters: with your donation at the door, you’ll enjoy an unlimited sampling of kugelis baked by every contestant along with a salad, dessert, coffee, and tea. Plus, you’ll receive a People’s Choice ballot to cast your vote in three prize categories: “Best Kugelis,” “Best Table Display,” and “Best to Absorb Lithuanian Beer!”
Lithuanian and domestic beer, wine, and cocktails will be available at our cash bar.
Chefs: to enter the Kugelis Cook-Off Contest, you’ll need to supply two half-pans of kugelis that you prepared at home from scratch. We’ll provide you with a table and chaffing rack. It’s up to you to decorate your table and serve your kugelis to the judges and attendees. Cash prizes will be awarded as follows: $200 first prize, $100 second prize, and $50 third prize. For more specific information, see our contestant rules and registration form. Contestant spots are limited, so register ASAP to guarantee your spot!
Judges include renowned Chef Georges Perrier, award-winning writer Don “Joe Sixpack” Russell, and Honorary Consul Krista Butvydas Bard.
- Adults: $20
- Youth 5 – 18 years: $10
- Children 4 and under: donation amount is up to you!
Whether you are a chef competing for cash prizes or an attendee feasting on decadent kugelis, you’ll be supporting the Lithuanian Music Hall Restoration Project, which preserves Lithuanian arts and culture for future generations!
