Meals on Wheels Annual culinary extravaganza: Carry on the Preakness party

On the hoofs of Preakness weekend, the party continues at the Grand Lodge Hunt Valley on Monday, May 18 from 5:30 to 9pm with Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland  Annual Culinary Extravaganza.

Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland’s first culinary fundraiser was in 1990.  Then known as “Taste the Best of Baltimore,” it consisted of a series of dinners in fine area restaurants, featuring some cooking demonstrations by participating chefs.  Their mission is to enable people to live independently at home through the provision of nutritious meals, personal contact and related services.

The first consolidated fundraiser was in 1993.  In 1995, the event became formally known as the “Culinary Extravaganza.”  The hallmark of the event, which continues to the present time, is the spotlight shone on participating chefs and the exquisite food they generously prepare for those in attendance.  The event has expanded over the years to now include Live and Silent Auctions, wine/food pairings, live music and entertainment. 

The list of participating hospitality purveyors will continue to grow, those participating:
