Last-Minute Plans: Cafe des Architectes Holiday Rock & Roll

By Melissa Wiley in Food on Dec 17, 2012 8:20PM

Buche de Noel at Glazed and Infused.
Tis the season for a little friendly competition. And if that competition centers on the Bûche de Noël, every francophile's favorite dessert, so much the better. This evening, from 6 to 8 pm, you can savor the best roulade that Chicago pastry chefs—from Balena's Amanda Rockman to Acadia's Thomas Raquel—have to offer and cast your vote for the tastiest Yuletide le dessert, all while doing your part to help end child hunger. Chefs will be competing at Cafe des Architectes to create the best example of this classic pastry.

Hosted by ABC 7's Steve Dolinksy, the event will include drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and live music from Rod Tuffcurls and the Bench Press. Tickets are $35 per person, and proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength.

Cafe des Architectes is located at 20 E. Chesnut.
