For all the foodies downtown, the Cleveland Culinary Challenge will be taking place Thursday November 3rd. The Cleveland Culinary Challenge is the perfect pairing of Cleveland's future culinary up-and-comers and some of the area's star chefs competing Iron Chef-style. Sample culinary creations from Pura Vida by Brandt while enjoying exciting demonstrations such as flair bartending, ice sculpting and pastry making. Then top off the evening with a dessert martini and a chance to win raffle prizes.

Talented Tri-C students will be paired up with Chef Dante Boccuzzi of Dante, Chef Doug Katz of fire food and drink, Chef Karen Small of Flying Fig and Chef Eric Williams of Momocho Mod Mex.

This year's Culinary Challenge judges include Susie Heller, author, television producer and recipe taster and Michael Ruhlman, author, journalist and Next Iron Chef judge.
