WNC Chefs Challenge 2011: The Orchard at Broadmoor vs Red Stag Grill
Two local Chefs go head to head in the next first round competition of the WNC Chef's Challenge held at Cucina24 on Monday, April 25. Chef Steve Sauer of The Orchard at Broadmoor competes against Chef Adam Hayes of the Red Stag Grill. Both Chefs participated in the inaugural competition last year so have an idea of what lies ahead of them.
This is week eight in the competition with the first seven weeks winners being Bistro at Biltmore, Pomodoros Greek & Italian Café, Lexington Ave. Brewery, Chef's Table, Posana Café, Sunburst Trout Company and Knife & Fork. The competitions each Monday are held at Cucina24 on Wall Street in downtown Asheville, click here for directions.
At each heat, two teams are given a secret ingredient to be featured in their culinary creations. Diners enjoy six dishes – three from each team – but are not told who has made each course. The diners then score the dishes using the same guidelines as a professional food critic to determine who advances to the next round. The top two competitors will face off during the finale at the Asheville Wine & Food Festival Grand Tasting in August. The WNC Chefs Challenge offers a unique way to participate in the pressure-filled environment of a world-class culinary competition.
Time: 6:00 PM
Price: $49. (excludes tax, beverages, and a 20% auto-gratuity that will be added to each final bill)
