Covenant House Chef Challenge

The annual Chef's Challenge from the Covenant House was held on Tuesday at the Clay Center and featured more than a dozen local chefs.

Covenant House Chef ChallengeIt's a tapas-style dine-around at the Clay Center where these chefs created a bite or two, and after #15, it feels as though you've had a full meal!
