How it Works:
Competitions are hosted in 5 regions of the state with two restaurants competing each evening in a single elimination, blind dinner format. You will be tasting 3 courses from each chef (a total of 6 courses) without knowing which chef has prepared them. A “Mystery” North Carolina ingredient must be used in all courses and the chefs won’t find out what that ingredient is until noon on the day of the competition. The drama builds! Then you, the diners, judge the food and get to determine who moves up to the next round. Check out the Rules here!
Where and When:
