Sunday Night Chef Fight!

Who doesn’t love to judge? You can witness a live culinary competition and judge it to! Join Orange County Sunday Night Chef Fight, this Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Standards of Excellence showroom in Huntington Beach. At the event, they’ll be crowning a new “Champion Chef of Orange County.” It’s down to two contenders, Chef Lindsay Smith-Rosales of the Nirvana Grille and “Rock n’ Roll Chef” Phil KNoke of SteerCrazy International BBQ, Catering, & Events.

Sunday Night Chef Fights is a cooking competition between local chefs featuring a live audience who get to sample each chef’s creations and act as judge, jury, and taste-tester in deciding the winner.

Before each event, both chefs are given three base ingredients that must be included in their creations, a shopping allowance, and a week to plan and prep their dishes. Then, during the event, each chef and his or her sous-chef will have just 30 minutes to cook and finish their dishes.

General Seating tickets cost $50 per person, which includes the competition, samples of both chef’s creations, and one pour of each Vino Vidi Vici wine. A limited number of VIP front-row seats are also available for $75 per person, which include the best seating in the house for the Chef Fight, priority service, larger portions of each chef’s creations, and two pours of each Vino Vidi Vici wine.
