Sugar Shock: A Dinner of Just Desserts
Here's an event to satisfy even the sweetest tooth: Sugar Shock. A group of Charlotte's top pastry chefs will come together on Monday, May 16, to make a six-course tasting menu comprised solely of desserts. The decadent evening will begin at 6:30 with light hors d’oeuvres, with dinner starting at 7 p.m.
Each course will include a beverage pairing, ranging from wine to an assortment of local beverages: Old North Soda, sodas made by Shelby farmer Jamie Swofford; Topo Vodka, an organic vodka out of Chapel Hill; and Pure Intentions Coffee, made by a small batch roaster right here in Charlotte.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Project 658 Culinary School and Community Feeding Project. Organizers are encouraging guests to bring a seasonal clothing donation for the Project 658 free clothing store. You can also make a donation online at the same time you purchase tickets, which are $65.00. The chefs who will be making desserts for Sugar Shock are:
Josselyn Perlmutter, Sweet Affairs and The Asbury
Alyssa Gorelick, Chef Alyssa's Kitchen

Samantha Ward, The Fig Tree Restaurant
