Raleigh, N.C. — The final Cooking for a Classic dinner has been postponed because one the chefs has a severe case of the flu, organizers announced.
Chefs Troy Stauffer of City Club Raleigh and Rich Carter of Catering Works were scheduled to compete Monday night at 1705 Prime in north Raleigh. The winner would receive a restored 1969 Corvette Stingray.
Cooking for a Classic started last month with 16 teams from around the Triangle. At each dinner, each chef prepares three dishes: a starter, a main with a protein and a dessert. Each food course is served with a chef-recommended drink pairing. Celebrity judges and diners help pick the winner.
Proceeds from tickets sold throughout the series benefit the nonprofit Lucy Daniels Center, which helps children with mental and emotional issues.
The final dinner will be held on April 10.
