DEMONSTRATION

Do you love the thrill of competition? Are you hooked on watching every TV reality show that pits chef against chef? Sliced is a live cooking competition between two Charlotte-area chefs where each chef will have to create an appetizer, entrée, and dessert each using a mystery basket of ingredients. All ingredients in the basket must be used, and the audience will judge based on taste, plating, and creativity. At the end of the competition, votes will be tallied and one chef will be crowned the Sliced champion. Salud! chefs will commentate during the competition to highlight techniques being used and give sneak peeks at what the chefs might be concocting. You never know what’s in that mystery basket, so the possibilities are as endless as the chefs’ creativity! Book early as this event has proven to be quite popular!

Competitors Steve Jordan of On the Nines Bistro vs. Jamie Barnes of What the Fries?

DEMONSTRATION

$65.00

Do you love the thrill of competition? Are you hooked on watching every TV reality show that pits chef against chef? Sliced is a live cooking competition between two Charlotte-area chefs where each chef will have to create an appetizer, entrée, and dessert each using a mystery basket of ingredients. All ingredients in the basket must be used, and the audience will judge based on taste, plating, and creativity. At the end of the competition, votes will be tallied and one chef will be crowned the Sliced champion. Salud! chefs will commentate during the competition to highlight techniques being used and give sneak peeks at what the chefs might be concocting. You never know what’s in that mystery basket, so the possibilities are as endless as the chefs’ creativity! Book early as this event has proven to be quite popular!

 

Competitors: Walker Frazier & David Quintana of Compass Group vs. Hannah Riley of Alternative Chef

Sliced is a live cooking competition between two Charlotte-area chefs where each chef will have to create an appetizer, entrée, and dessert each using a mystery basket of ingredients. All ingredients in the basket must be used, and the audience will judge based on taste, plating, and creativity. At the end of the competition, votes will be tallied and one chef will be crowned the Sliced champion. Salud! chefs will commentate during the competition to highlight techniques being used and give sneak peeks at what the chefs might be concocting.
