34th annual Caesar Salad Competition at Conrad Hilton Thursday

For the Foodies out there

It’s one of the longest-running events in Houston, uniting members of the culinary community through a love of greens, croutons, grated cheese, and salty salad dressing. Thursday is the 34th annual Caesar Salad Competition, hosted by the Food & Beverage Managers of Houston and taking place at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Houston Hilton Hotel’s Conrad Ballroom. Twenty local chefs will take place in the competition, and judges will reward participants in the categories of best classic, best presentation, and most creative, and there will also be a people’s choice award. Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the door; visit caesarsaladcompetitionhouston.com for more information.

It is a cool event.

I am always amazed at the number of things in this world that would never have occurred to me. Must be a great event. 34 years. Wow!

A surprise victor from among this year’s participants was none other than the University of Houston Dining Services. In their own back yard, the university dining services team took home the award for best presentation with a delightful salad in a miniature red taco shell that caught the judges eyes.
