How the Event Works
Battle it out with some of the area’s best chefs for a chance to win best dish in 1 of 4 categories-Best Soup, Best Appetizer, Best Entree, and Best Dessert. One lucky participant will win the People’s Choice Award and the chance to participate in the World Food Championships* for having the judges’ favorite dish for the evening.
This year’s 19th Annual Chef Challenge will take place on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at the Fort Whiting Armory in Mobile, AL, from 6-9 p.m.
Hundreds of attendees will sample your dish and vote for their favorite in each category. You have the chance to showcase your restaurant while giving back to the Alabama Gulf Coast. This event brings in funds to help us feed thousands of Alabama families in need.
Your business will be listed on our website and promoted through social media, radio/tv, and email marketing leading up to the event. There are also limited media spots available.
