Last Sunday evening the Champaign City Center was transformed into an event that could rival any Food Network competition I’ve ever seen. 175 guests gathered to eat, drink, and celebrate local food while supporting The Land Connection. Four teams, each comprised of a talented chef paired with local farmers and food producers, cooked up beautiful dishes for the judges and guests to try. While all were deliciously creative, only one could win.
