Best Food Event
Critics, upstate: What began as a celebrity chef’s brunch 11 years ago has expanded into a Meals from the Masters Weekend of culinary excellence. About 30 of the world’s renowned chefs gather in Wilmington each spring to strut their stuff for a good cause. The Evening With The Masters lures hundreds to the Chase Center on the Riverfront to enjoy demonstrations by celebrity chefs from such places as Johnson & Wales University and to sample the best dishes from top local chefs. The live wine auction is equally popular. At the Chefs’ Brunch, top chefs prepare tasting portions for more than 1,000 guests. The ever-expanding event, which also includes quarterly wine dinners in private homes and a beach brunch in October, has raised beaucoup dollars for Meals on Wheels Delaware over the years—a record $590,000-plus this year alone. (100 W. 10th St., Suite 207, Wilmington, 656-3257)

Downstate, critics: The theme of the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival is “A Day For Chocolate Lovers,” which may be the understatement of the decade. Check the next event (March) at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center and decadent entries from such favorite restaurants as Victoria’s, Café Sole, Dogfish Head, La Rosa Negra, The Bake Shoppe and Pasqualini’s Bakery. (Rehoboth Main Street, 227-2772)
