Epic Chef Showdown: Semi-Finals, Monday, August 14th, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

The 3rd annual Epic Chef Showdown benefiting Feeding Tampa Bay is back! This live cooking competition pits the best chefs of Tampa Bay against each other for an entertaining show and delicious meal. Here’s how it works:each week the two competing chefs are challenged with cooking two unique dishes using unusual ingredients (last week the chefs were given Stouffer’s Meatloaf, raw oysters and Gerber’s Peach Puree). In front of a live audience, the judges will choose a winner who will move on the next round in the following weeks. Attendees will receive a coursed meal with wine pairings. Last week Mise en Place was crowned winner of round 5. This week’s semi-final duel is between Noble Crust and Ava. Tickets are sold out, but you can join the waitlist here.
