A collection of 80 impressive culinary competitors from across the state and beyond will be participating in the event in either the Professional or the Student categories. The competition will include both hot and cold food categories and dishes are judged on a scale (not against other dishes). Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals are awarded in the various categories for dishes that earn an established number of points. The competition will also feature several local farms including Calder Dairy, and Hickory Hills Farms. A panel of impressive culinary judges are scheduled for this event, including:
- Chef Kevin Gawronski CMC, Lead Judge
- Chef Stafford DeCambra CEC, CCE, CCA, AAC, and President of the American Culinary Federation
- Chef Dan Hugelier CMC
Chef Kevin Gawronski and Chef Dan Hugelier are Certified Master Chefs, a title issued by the American Culinary Federation that is held by only 68 chefs nationwide. Other members of the American Culinary Federation will be on hand for the competition as well.
Dorsey Schools would like to extend special thanks to those serving as sponsors for this event:
- Calder Dairy and Farm
- Brookwood Fruit Farm
