Results of First Market Chef Competition

This past Saturday at the Salisbury Farmer's Market was our first installment of the Market Chef Competition.
 
 
It was a lot of fun!!
There were a few kinks that had to be worked out in the beginning but in the end it turned out great & I think our participants had a blast!
 
I've even heard a few other people say they are thinking of signing up to do the next round of Market Chef.
 
 
To keep it interesting we'll change up the rules a tad but it will still be a lot of fun for all involved.
 
Since WTF donated Sweet Italian Sausage to be used in the competition Domisty got to be the "Surprise Judge."
 
Read all about the competition in the Salisbury Post.
 
And don't forget to sign up for the next Market Chef competition......

Bacon & Brews Cruise In

 
We had the opportunity to volunteer with the Piedmont Culinary Guild at the Inaugural Bacon & Brews Cruise-In.
 
There were 20 chefs & 5 Breweries competing.  The chefs all had to use bacon in their dishes.  They varied from sweet to savory.  All the ones I tried were DELICIOUS!!!
 Chef Craig Diehl was also there doing a whole hog butchery demonstration.
 
WTF was there working the T-shirt booth & selling Cheerwine & Uncle Scott's Root Beer.
 
I took a few pictures before the event started but because we were working I didn't get out much during the event.
 
It was a great event & they have already started planing next years event!

Market Chef Competition at Salisbury Farmer's Market

Do you enjoy "heated" competition? Are you brave in the kitchen? Do you have cooking skills? Can you create gourmet dishes in a pinch? If so, the Market Chef Competition is for you! This market season, the Rowan-Salisbury Farmers' Market will host its first ever cooking competition. There will be three days of competition. At the end of the competition, the winner will be crowned, "The Best Market Chef". The first round will be held July 19 with four competitors. The winner will continue on to the next round, competing against a new set of challengers.
 
There will be twists and turns at every competition. Chefs will handle local mystery ingredients, time/money limitations, and new judges with each round. This competition will be similar to Food Television's popular shows, "Cut Throat Kitchen", "Iron Chef", and "Chopped". Contestants need to bring their "A-Game" if they wish to make the final round!
 
Seasonal ingredients from the Farmers' Market will be the contestants' muse. Each ingredient provided has to be used in the dishes that the chefs create. Failure to do this will cause them to be "sliced".
 
 Presentation is important!
The contestants can also have an assistant of their choosing.
 They must bring their own knives, spices, oil, unopened pantry items, pots, pans, etc.
 Pots and pans will have to be brought to the Cooperative Extension office on the Monday before the competition to be washed and sanitized.
 
To compete, contestants must fill out the application and deliver to the Cooperative Extension office at 2727-A Old Concord Rd., Salisbury, NC 28146.
 
There is a $10.00 fee for contestants.
 
Because of limited space, fees will be collected after the contestants are selected (contestants are selected on a first come first served basis).
 
Applications are due no later than Friday, July 11th.
The dates to compete are July 19, August 9, and September 6.
 
The competition will be held at 10 am at the Rowan-Salisbury Farmers' Market, 115 S. Jackson St., Salisbury.
 
So, if you feel that you have what it takes to be the first Rowan-Salisbury Farmers' Market, "Market Chef", bring it on!
Want to participate?
 
 
 Let the competition begin!
