Chefs on the Edge


The rowdiest culinary event of the year! Chefs on the Edge is the edgy gastronomic game show where your best boisterous behavior is the perfect table manner.

Get ready early by visiting the Online Auction before the show to place bids on captivating auction items. Like to be a part of the action? Bid for a spot on one of the competing teams as a Sous Chef. Think you’ve got the proper palate? Win a seat on the team of Tasting Judges. Just want to enjoy with no pressure? Four lucky auction winners revel in coveted VIP tables where they will be wined and dined.

The night of the competition, your evening begins with tantalizing small plates on the Center’s Outdoor Stage. This food extravaganza features tables from all the best local restaurants and cash bars interspersed throughout. Be sure to buy door prize tickets because lucky winners can join the judge’s team, or win a host of other alluring prizes.

After everyone is fully satiated the steamy culinary action begins with the “Battle of the Valley” for title champion of Chefs on the Edge. Each chef prepares three courses with a basket of groceries chosen by a special guest. And then – the Secret Ingredient is unveiled. Last year, the chefs were challenged with red hots! Sparks fly from knives, creativity is brought to a boil, the crowd is off their feet and cheering.

The ever entertaining Emcee Michael Marchitelli keeps the audience engaged and informed of the cooking acrobatics occurring on stage. You see and hear every garlic clove being minced, every red pepper being julienned. That’s not enough to keep you entertained? Pay attention, because there’s also riveting culinary trivia, raffle prize give-aways, and live auction happening during the competition.

Each of the three courses are blind taste tested by the panel of carefully selected judges, looking especially at how the Secret Ingredient is utilized. Artistic expression. Taste. Texture. Flare. All are stirred into the mix to determine the 2017 Chefs on the Edge Champion.

The heat is really on for this year's bragging rights with prize money on the table. Which team will slice, dice and sauté their way to the crown of the Chefs on the Edge competition? Don’t expect to just be able to sit lackadaisically in your seat. This is an event for the raucous food enthusiast - come cheer them on! Then celebrate the accomplishments of the competitors at the equally rowdy After Party.
