Every summer, Viodoug Entertainment produces CFN: The Summer Series, a chef tournament comprised of two rounds of preliminaries followed by the Championship Battle. At the Summer Series, local chefs will prepare dishes in a food festival atmosphere while guests mingle and shop with local vendors during two prelims. Afterwards, both winners from each prelim, who will be chosen by the audience, will compete at Culinary Fight Night and produce a 6 course meal for the audience, vying for the title of 2019’s Culinary Fight Night Summer Series Champion! Our 2018 Champion, Chef Megan Snyder from Proof Restauant, will be passing the belt to our new winner.
The idea of this event is to provide a fun and interactive environment where local chefs can mingle with the community, prepare great food for potential customers and playfully compete against their peers for an array of prizes.
Competitors for 2019
Round One contenders (June 2nd): Chef Gary Robertson (Django), Chef Cody Poehlein (Reed’s Hollow), Chef Chase Johanson (Americana), Chef Ben Hayes (Peace of Cake Cafe),
