The Sierra Chef Challenge features local talents duking it out for the coveted Sierra Chef title.

The 6th Annual Sierra Chef Challenge includes three heats of two chefs each cooking against one another with a mystery box of locally grown ingredients. In each heat, the two chefs will have 45 minutes to complete their dishes.  If a chef is not done in the 45 minute time frame s/he will be disqualified from the judging. The chefs will have a commissary table that will be shared by all the chef’s for produce, dairy & dry goods needs. Each chef can bring three items from their restaurant to be used in their dishes. All items brought from individual chef’s restaurants will be shared at the commissary table. Each chef will be judged on creativity, presentation and taste. The two chefs with the best dishes will advance to the final round to face each other for the coveted Sierra Chef title.
