The Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon Chamber of Commerce held a chef competition last Thursday. Among the dozen or so competitors were Harryman House, Santoni's and Mr. Charles Market caterers.

The winner for best dish, herb-encrusted chicken, came from Future Care Cherrywood, Future Care Cherrywood, a 165-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center that specializes in Pulmonary Rehab, located in Reisterstown.

"We are thrilled to support this annual community event and excited to be able to showcase the delicious food that is served at Cherrywood," said Future Care administrator Donna Leister. "The original idea for the signature Cherrywood Fiesta herb-encrusted chicken came from a collaboration of our dietary team and a local farmer."

Cherrywood also served a chocolate bread pudding with coffee cream sauce at the event.

Del. Jon Cardin and Baltimore County Councilwoman Vicki Almond were among the 200 people attending the event, partial proceeds from which benefited the Reisterstown Community Crisis Center.
