FiveStar Food Fight Presented By Springer Mountain Farms

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Chattanooga Market will host the finale event to Chattanooga Magazine's Restaurant Week on July 30.

The FiveStar Food Fight presented by Springer Mountain Farms. Market patrons will be able to watch five local chefs show off their culinary skills for a live cooking competition. The participating chefs have been carefully selected, and are eager to woo not only a live audience, but a panel of judges as well.

It's all part of a week-long celebration ending at the Market with a tribute to some of the best chefs in our area. The chefs will have to be creative, quick-thinking and skillful.  And, it's no small feat since they will not be able to plan or prepare ahead of time. They will arrive to the Market armed only with their personal cooking equipment. The chef introductions will be at 11:30 am (Market opens at 11:00) and then the shopping begins. Market patrons will be able to watch the chefs carefully pick out the freshest fruits, vegetables, spices, cheeses and more to make their dish remarkable, right from Chattanooga Market vendors.  Springer Mountain Farms, event sponsor, will be providing select cuts of their 100% all-natural chicken for the chefs to use as their protein. 

After the shopping portion is complete, the chefs will then demonstrate their culinary skills using FiveStar professional cooking ranges. They will cook for one hour while guest emceeDyan Damron, gives a play by play on what the chefs are creating, keeping the audience well informed.  From there, the judges will be presented one by one with the chefs' dishes judging them by presentation, taste and creativity. After the judging process is complete, the winner will receive a one of a kind metal trophy designed and crafted by Market artist, Allen Hampton. Additionally, the winning chef will be awarded an automatic entrance into the World Chef Challenge for 2017, held in Orange Beach, Alabama this year.
