Lodge Cast Iron Cook Off 2023
The Lodge Originals Only, USA Enamel Cook-Off is an exciting live cooking demonstration/competition where local Chefs are invited to show off their skills — utilizing Lodge Cast Iron products!
They’ll demonstrate (in front of our live audience) how fun and easy it is to incorporate Lodge Cast Iron products into your home cooking. New this year, our chefs will be cooking with the USA Enamel products from Lodge. And best yet, you’ll be able to purchase this latest line from Lodge at the Holiday Market during this special event.
Our Chefs will come armed with their most ORIGINAL dish to serve up to our team of judges. They’ll come prepared with everything they need, but the pressure is on. They’ll be given a surprise ingredient — on the spot — that must be incorporated into their creation. The Lodge Originals Only, USA Enamel Cook-Off will take place from 11am – 3pm. Come watch the fun!
The winning Chef will receive a gift from Lodge Cast Iron and a one-of-a-kind Allen Hampton trophy (utilizing Lodge Cast Iron)!
Find us indoors during December weekends at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Our Holiday Market features 200+ local food vendors, artists, and crafters each Saturday & Sunday in December. Offering unique gifts and festive preparations – everything you’ll need for the holiday season! Shoppers will be able to find one-of-a-kind pottery, custom pieces of art, handcrafted jewelry, local foods, natural bath and body products, locally designed and made apparel, wood furniture, and so much more. Ask vendors about commissioned pieces for that special touch. Chattanooga Holiday Market has become a shopping tradition for the whole family!
