The Chef Showdown is a competitive platform for new and ambitious chefs to showcase their creative talents for an afternoon of food, drinks and interaction. This competition will bring together four talented chefs and food lovers (a.k.a. you!), for a night of bites, drinks and conversation.
The competing chefs will be doing what they do best, making your tummy happy but this time they're taking their talents to new levels. Thinking they've created their best bites in previous outings and events, they'll have to one-up themselves and each other, and concoct their best culinary creations to impress the kommunity. You, the audience, will taste, critique and judge each bite based on creativity, presentation and taste. The chef with the highest rated bites will be served with the Chef Showdown Trophy!
