It was a tasty night for certain when 11 chefs joined the friendly competition to win the hearts of more than 450 partygoers who gathered at The Corinthian for the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Gala. Through rounds of Roaring ’20s style partying and intense programming, the night was a success of more than $400,000.

Applause, applause for chairs Christie and Mark Sullivan and Kathy and Paul Mannand for Community Honorees Cora Sue and Harry Mach and Corporate Honoree H-E-B.

Congratulations go to Brennan’s chef Joe Cervantez, who won Best Signature dish for his shrimp creole tamales, and to Emmaline chef Dimitri Voutsinas, who earned Best Presentation honors for his salmon wellington. And then there was the People’s Choice winner — chef Hilda Ysusi of Broken Barrel, who melted our hearts with her confit of apricot pork belly with potatoes and jicama slaw.

Culinary chair Matt Harris rounded up the coterie of chefs that included Del Frisco’s James Cole, Pax Americana’s Martha DeLeon, Nothing Bundt Cakes’ Eduardo Garcia, Kuu’s Adison Lee, Potente’s Danny Trace, The Pit Room’s Bram Tripp and Harold’s Antoine Ware
