Western North Carolina's hottest culinary competition is back on the food scene. The region's top chefs square off in weekly match-ups that determine who wins the title of Best Chef in WNC. The competitions will be held each Monday at Cucina24 in Asheville. Doors open at 6pm, with seating beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $49 each and do not include beverages or a 7.5% sales tax. A 20% auto-gratuity will also be added to each final bill.
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.
Our Official Challenge Auditor is Dixon Hughes, the largest CPA firm based in the Southern U.S. After all dishes have been tasted and scored each week, two of their professionals will tally the results and announce the winner at each event!
