The 12th annual Events DC Embassy Chef Challenge presented by TCMA celebrates culinary diplomacy and provides a uniquely DC opportunity to taste authentic food and drinks from embassy chefs representing all regions of the world.

An array of international performances including musicians and dancers provide the entertainment throughout the evening. In no other city can you experience in a single evening the variety of delicious, authentically-prepared global cuisine and diverse, live cultural performances. Cultural diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of the Challenge. Attendees should bring an empty stomach, open mind and be prepared to take a journey around the world. 

Come early, stay late!  After visiting each regional pavilion to sample the sips and bites, be part of the excitement to see which chefs win the Judge’s Choice awards, voted on by an esteemed panel of culinary experts. The People's Choice winner is selected by you, the attendee, which means you must sample every food and drink offering.
