Tickets for Chefs Taste Challenge: Battle of the Gulf Now on Sale

NEW ORLEANS – Tickets are now on sale for New Orleans’ premiere cooking competition, Chefs Taste Challenge, taking place on September 7, 2018. Eight chefs from the Gulf Coast region will prepare a dinner entrée tasting course. Awards for wining dishes will be selected by attendees and a panel of judges. Tickets for the event cost $99 each and will provide attendees with tastings of the menus prepared by the competing chefs, wine pairings sponsored by organic wine company Bonterra, a beer bar sponsored by Lazy Magnolia Brewery, and a voting card to determine a “fan favorite” dish. A portion of each ticket sold will go to Edible Schoolyard New Orleans, a program dedicated to teaching school-aged children how to cook and grow their own meals. There is also an eight-ticket bundle package available for $899 that will guarantee you a reserved table for you and seven of your friends.

The eight featured chefs will compete to create the best dishes that utilize farm-fresh items from a pantry of pre-selected ingredients. Items stocked in the pantry will be representative of ingredients that are in-season in various regions at the time of the competition. This year, chefs will not only be competing to create the best individual dish, but will be working to achieve victory for their home turf as part of a team representing either the Greater New Orleans area or the Greater Gulf Coast region.
