Good Samaritan Inn Culinary Cookoff 2023 | Forsyth, Illinois

We had the opportunity on August 10 to photograph the Good Samaritan Inn’s Culinary Cookoff 2023. This is the second year we’ve been able to partner with the wonderful people at GSI for this incredibly fun event.

“The Culinary Cookoff is a night of food, fun, and friendly competition!
Taste different dishes and vote for your favorite! Test your luck to see who will win at some fun games and check out our unique Live & Silent Auctions featuring unique art and experiences for a great cause.”

The food was prepared by Richland Community College’s Culinary Institute and GSI’s own, Chef Rachel Wear. Ultimately, the victor of the evening was Chef Rachel and her INCREDIBLE ratatouille.

One of the things I love about this event is seeing people from all over the community come together for an awesome event, and raising money to support the work that Good Samaritan Inn does in the greater Decatur, Illinois area. The food is to die for, the drinks are great, the live auction items are incredible and the programming is always a party. This year Pizzazz the Band tore up the stage and Abbi McKinnie made beautiful portraits during the event.

Thank you to Good Samaritan Inn for having us out to take photos of your event.

Thank you to Hickory Point Golf and Banquet Facility for having wonderful, helpful staff and facilities for this event.
