Pack your stretchy pants and book your stay on the Alabama Gulf Coast because Orange Beach is hosting the 6th Annual Sweetest Chefs!
To be hosted Friday, September 17, at The Port at The Wharf, Sweetest Chefs is a top-shelf culinary event that spotlights America’s top pastry chefs. The sweetest evening on the Alabama Gulf Coast includes 20-plus dessert tastings and dessert demonstrations.
Here are our top 10 reasons why this annual event is a must:
Multiple chefs, one location: Nowhere else can you find more than 20 of the top pastry chefs from all around the South in one location—and get the opportunity to taste their sweetest culinary offerings.
Cooking demonstrations: Ever want to attend a live baking show? Now’s your chance! The Rouses Market’s Stage will feature top pastry chefs hosting live cooking demonstrations.
You’re the judge: Attendees get the opportunity to cast their ballot for the 2021 Sweetest Chefs Awards and watch as winners are announced.
Cocktail recipe demonstrations: The annual event offers so much more than sweets! Chefs in attendance will also demonstrate a variety of cocktail recipes.
Meet and greet with chefs: The low-key event will offer time to meet, greet, and potentially even snap a photo with the top pastry chefs in attendance.
Good night for a good cause: Some of the funds raised at the event will support culinary education in the Baldwin County area.
Swag: This year’s swag table may be the best yet! Attendees can get their hands on product samples, special offers, and gadgets—not to mention door prizes that will be given away during the event.
Hot food bar: While the desserts alone are worth attending, the event also includes a hot food bar and beverage tastings that highlight the diverse culinary offerings of the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Time with friends: There’s no better excuse for a night out with friends than an opportunity to indulge in sweet treats and coastal cocktails—all while rubbing elbows with many of the chefs in attendance.
Fall on the coast: With temperatures a little cooler yet still warm enough to enjoy being outdoors, fall is the perfect time to visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.
