The Pikes Peak Chapter of the American Culinary Federation has announced the lineup for its 2018 Culinary Passport Dinner, to be held at Julie Penrose Hall in the St. Paul Parish Center (9 El Pomar Road, stpaulcos.org). The event features dishes by local chefs that spotlight culinary cultures around the world, and the proceeds go to the chapter’s endowments fund, as well as a community beneficiary. This year, they’re helping faith-based food charity High Plains Helping Hands.

According to a press release from ACF Pikes Peak Chapter Endowments Chair Kathy Anderson, the fund helps chapter members pay for educational opportunities, certification testing and competitions, making it a little more affordable for them to continue to hone their skills.

The lineup features chefs representing culinary traditions from 11 countries, including China, Jamaica and more. For dessert, expect Swiss offerings from Pikes Peak Community College culinary arts faculty members Richard Carpenter and Michael Paradiso, plus German offerings from Alyssa Lopez of Nothing Bundt Cakes and French pastries from Chef Mo Montgomery of Pueblo Community College. Coffee will be provided by Veteran Coffee Roasters. Wine will be provided by Steins & Vines, and beer will be provided by Bristol Brewing Company.

The event is set for the night of Saturday, April 28, and tickets start at $50 — go to pikespeakchefs.com to purchase. Check out the full list of participating chefs and the culinary traditions they'll represent below.
