ALMOST CHOPPED! Hadassah’s Incredible Cooking Competition, The 2nd Helping


On Sunday, September 22, 2019 Hadassah Greater Atlanta is hosting ALMOST CHOPPED! HADASSAH’S INCREDIBLE COOKING COMPETITION, THE 2ND HELPING.
We're raising funds for the Hadassah Medical Organization which supports advanced medical research for ALS and other neurological disease

Teams of two Chef-testants* will compete in 2 rounds of cooking. The challenge is for our Chef-testants* to take the baskets filled with mystery ingredients, along with the tools provided, to create something that will wow our judges.

These Chef-testants*, along with their sous chefs, will be battling out for a win, but the real winners will be a brighter future for those suffering with neurological diseases.
