This year’s NC Chef Showdown will feature a competition between 16 chefs – 12 NC chefs competing with savory entrees and four NC Pastry Chefs competing with offerings on the sweeter side of things.
At the 2017 NC Chef Showdown competition, each chef will prepare a single dish, making enough to serve all of the event’s attendees as well as a panel of six culinary judges. Each competing dish will be judged on taste, appearance, creativity and best use of a North Carolina ingredient.
uring the event, chefs will present their dishes to the panel to the judges table in front of the crowd and will have an opportunity to explain their use of local ingredients, the conceptualization of the dish and tell a little bit about themselves and their restaurant.
Throughout the event, event guests will also be able to taste each chef’s dish and will cast their votes for a People’s Choice Award.
The winners will be announced at the end of the evening and will also be recognized at the NCRLA’s annual Taste of North Carolina gala event. As the audience of North Carolina food enthusiasts cannot live on food alone, six participating North Carolina Distilleries are paired with local mixologists who each create a custom craft cocktail for the crowd to sample.
