UWindsor staff preparing for food fight

Food Services staff will join chefs from local restaurants and hospitality businesses for the Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres, Thursday, May 26, at Caesars Windsor.

A fundraiser for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex Foundation, the event gives guests the opportunity to become food critics for the night while supporting youth mentoring programs.

“We can’t say what dish we will be making,” says executive chef Paolo Vasapolli, trying to maintain a competitive edge. “The theme is to use local ingredients.”

This is the event’s 30th anniversary year, and Vasapolli says it is popular with volunteers from Food Services.

“It’s not just about the food, although it does offer a chance for us to showcase our abilities,” he says. “We know that it’s a good cause. Helping these kids contributes to a better future for the whole community.”

More information, including a full list of participants and ticket details, is available on the event website.
