8/12: Five Star Food Fight

One of our most anticipated “foodie” events…where chefs compete live!

The 2012 competing chefs for the Five Star Food Fight are:

  • Aaron Long, Market Street Tavern
  • Nathan Flint, Famous Nators
  • Matt Marcus, Hennen’s
  • Andrew Millsaps, Broadstreet Grille
  • Nick Goeller, 212 Market

Let the games begin! It’s a foodie day where you get to see the chefs in action. First, the chefs will all be given the secret ingredient that they must incorporate (usually a protein, i.e. chicken, fish, beef…). Then they will shop for the rest of their dish purchasing everything they’ll need right at Chattanooga Market. Watch them pick out the freshest fruits, vegetables, spices, cheeses and more. From about 11:30 till 3pm watch the chefs demonstrate their culinary skills using FiveStar cooking ranges, a longtime Market sponsor. While there will be a winner announced by our panel of judges – it’s really just a friendly foodie fight!

11:30 – 12:30 chefs scour the Market for fresh ingredients with only $30 shopping money (don’t worry, they’ll be able to buy plenty of fresh produce, cheeses, spices and more)

12:45 – 1:45 live cooking demonstrations begin…

1:45 – 2:45 judges panel are each served a main dish portion prepared from each chef for sampling and judging

3:00 2012 winning chef is announced!
