It’s nearly impossible for the competing chefs to plan ahead, because the main ingredient (beef, chicken, pork or fish) won’t be revealed until 11:30am when it’s time for them to shop for the fresh ingredients they will need to complete their main dish. Patrons are encouraged to watch & follow as the chefs pick and choose amongst the freshest fruits, vegetables, spices, cheeses and more to make their dish remarkable.
From about 12:30 till 3pm market-goers will watch the chefs demonstrate their culinary skills using FiveStar cooking ranges, a longtime Market sponsor. Emcee, Kelley McCoy of KZ106, will give the play-by-play on what each chef is preparing, their ingredients and provide the audience with personal interviews from each.
While there will be a winner announced by our panel of judges – it’s really just a friendly foodie fight!
