Grand Chef Throwdown

September 13, 2019 | Hotel del Coronado

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of San Diego has selected restaurateur Bertrand Hug as the recipient of its inaugural CFF Grand Chef Throwdown Icon Award. Hug will be honored at the seaside soiree featuring 30+ San Diego and Baja chefs. The award was created to recognize a community leader who has exemplified integrity and a dedication to excellence. Hug has influenced the San Diego culinary culture for more than three decades, and is an example of uncompromising quality. The progressive evening will bring together local foodies who will present a People’s Choice Award. The “Culinary Council,” consisting of celebrity top chefs and food critics, including Hug, will engage in a blind tasting of dishes from the chefs competing to be presented with the coveted Chef Flor Franco Award for Culinary Excellence. events.cff.org/grandchefthrowdown
