3rd Annual Battle of the Bakers/40 Under 40 Benefitting Dallas Furniture Bank

In just one week from today, we will be honoring 40 of Dallas' best and brightest young professionals under the age of 40. This group of extraordinary young individuals contribute so much to our DFW community, and for this reason, they must be recognized.

Last year I was humbled to be selected as one of the 40, and this year the Dallas Furniture Bank has passed the baton to me, making me a co-chair of the event!

It has been a wonderful journey planning the event with the rest of the board and getting to know the 40 Honorees! I can hardly wait for next Tuesday night, May 3, when it all comes together! Not only do we get to dote on this amazing group of young individuals, but we're also raising money for the Dallas Furniture Bank so they can continue to provide basic household furnishings to people in need.

Don’t miss the third annual Battle where 10 of D/FW’s best bakers, pastry chefs and caterers compete for the vote of a panel of celebrity judges as well as our attendees in a People's Choice vote!

The awards will be for Best Savory Item, Best Chocolate Item, Most Beautiful Presentation, Most Creative, Overall Most Delicious and Highest Difficulty.

If you need to taste each and every item at least twice before casting your vote, like I will, don't worry, accuracy is highly encouraged! ;)
