Chef competition & pairings

CHEESE TEASE CHEF COMPETITION (1:15 - 2 P.M)

image1

You be the judge!  Purchase a tasting ticket and you become one of the People's Choice judges.  We have five chefs competing this year and here's their challenge:  create an appetizer that will be beautiful to look at and even more delicious to eat.  Creations must include cheese, an edible way to get the appetizer to one’s mouth, and be savory or sweet. Last year's winner, Chef Rosemary Chiariello from Albemarle Inn, will return to defend her title! 

Tastings will be ready at 1:15 p.m. and voting closes at 2 p.m.
