CFN will showcase 4 local teams of chefs on 2/25 and 4 more teams on 3/25. Each will provide samples of their favorite dishes for guests to enjoy. After sampling creations from all chefs, shopping from local vendors, listening to music and winning prizes, guests will vote for the team of chefs they enjoyed the most. In the end, the winning team from each tasting event will advance to the championship match.
The 2 finalists from our Grand Tasting events will prepare 3 course meals (appetizer, entrée, & dessert) for a live audience and 3 local celebrity judges, translating into a 6 course meal for all. Each team will be scored based on taste, creativity and presentation. In the end, the team with the most points will be named the Ultimate Champion and walk away with a customized championship belt and a cash prize!
