Consider venturing up to the beautiful Old Edwards Inn in North Carolina on March 17 to watch as chefs battle it out for the title of King of the Mountain. In each of three cooking competitions, chefs will have 40 minutes to prepare a meal using three to five “mystery” ingredients revealed to them at the start of the competition.
Three judges will evaluate the chefs’ creations based on taste, use of ingredients, presentation and originality. Flavors’ very own Managing Food Editor, Shelley Sawyer (pictured below) will provide colorful commentary throughout.
