SPANNING SIX CITIES ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA THE 2016 GOT TO BE NC COMPETITION DINING SERIES IS COMPLETE. This year we mixed it up, stirred the pot and put a new spin on things with an exciting collaborative twist for the Carolina's most competitive chefs!

AND NOW THE BATTLE OF CHAMPIONS BRACKET IS SET! Bracket will be announced and tickets available for sale beginning of October. Stay tuned!

THE GOT TO BE NC COMPETITION DINING SERIES is an emotionally inspiring and interactive dining experience connecting the chef, the farmer and you, the diner.   Each evening, two teams of chefs battle it out in a neutral kitchen location.  Diners vote on each dish digitally, ultimately deciding who goes on and who goes home! 

YOU BE THE JUDGE! is what differentiates us from all other cooking competitions. As our guest, you savor a full service "blind" six course dinner (3 dishes from each team) that revolves around featured ingredients. As you dine, you're voting on criteria such as, presentation, aroma, flavor, creativity and more. "Share" your dishes with your friends on social media right from the app and experience the intensity as the scores are revealed right in front of you.
