2016 Competition Dining Series

Dear Chefs,

This year we are mixing it up, stirring the pot and putting a new spin on things with an exciting collaborative twist for the Carolina's most competitive chefs!

Over the years through competition dining and various other events, you, the North Carolina culinary community, have come together to become a close knit family. You have collaborated on exciting theme dinners, charitable causes and disaster relief fundraisers just to mention a few. 

So, in the spirit of collaboration, and in keeping with Competition Dining's #1 Rule - Have Fun, get together and create your All-Star Dream Team! 

Teams can comprise of 3 members from your own establishment, or from 3 separate establishments. Our only requirement is that team members are professionally employed by, or in business as, a foodservice establishment.

This concept will be less taxing on the labor force of any one given establishment by only requiring one member to be out of his/her kitchen to participate in a battle. 

2016 Season is underway so get your application in now! 

Call me if you have questions and we'll see you on the Battlefield!
