Coeur de Cuisine™ Making a Difference Locally and Internationally

The Coeur de Cuisine™ gourmet gala is our major annual fundraiser, and has become a social highlight throughout the North San Diego County region each February. This sophisticated fête features the finest chefs, vintners and brewers, and you will sample food, beverages and desserts from more than 40 different local businesses. Every year we award scholarships to Seniors from five local high schools: Escondido Charter; San Pasqual Academy; Escondido High; Orange Glen High; and San Pasqual High. Sponsorships and donations from the 2017 Coeur de Cuisine made it possible to award $28,000 in May 2017 to more than 45 deserving students.
