On Thursday, September 26th, Savor Pittsburgh is filling The Peterson Event Center with the city's best restaurants serving up their best dishes. They will be competing for "Dish of the Year" while raising funds for Magee-Women's Research Institute and Foundation.
Savor for a Good Cause
Magee-Women's Research Institute and Foundation are known for its research in prenatal and postnatal women's health. Symptoms like Preeclampsia and Gestational Diabetes are being researched locally in Oakland. Doctors study women who come to Magee during all stages of pregnancy. The hope is that through this testing, the doctors can trace genetics and beginnings of the symptoms to stop them before they start.
Participating Restaurants include Altius, Cinderlands Beer Co, Senti, Fl. 2, Lidia's Pittsburgh, Revival on Lincoln, and Valozzi's Pittsburgh. A panel of judges will award "Dish of the Year," People's Choice, Best Appetizer, Best Entree, and Best Dessert. Judges include Nick Ambeliotis of Mediterra Bakehouse, Rossilynne Culigan of The Incline, Rachel Carlson from YELP, Katie Ferguson of 412 eats, Star Laliberte and Jennifer Kostick of Gourmandburgh Girls, Gretchen McKay from Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Lori Monte of The Kitchen Whisperer, Jeff Rose of LOCAL Magazine, and Rick Sebak from WQED.
