Are you FIU’s best chef?

Contestants will be competing for the title of FIU’s best chef on Friday, December 6, 2019 in the Graham Center Ballrooms at MMC.

The Taste of FIU Cook Off is FIU’s annual cooking competition that benefits the United Way. FIU students, faculty, staff and alumni battle head-to-head for the chance to be named FIU’s Best Chef.

Last year, our own Education alumnus, Jordan Acosta, earned the best chef title.

This fun-filled event features food, drinks and access to the United Way auction with the price of admission. Tickets can be purchased online for $20 or $25 at the door.

Each Taste of FIU Cook Off contestant has a goal of fundraising a minimum of $500 to benefit United Way of Miami-Dade, which is due by November 22, at 5:00pm. Help your favorite chef earn the title of Top Fundraiser by donating to their fundraising goal here.
