Enjoy an evening of food, fun and competition at the 5th annual “Fire and Fusion-An Executive Chef Competition” on Wednesday, May 3th from 6-9pm at the Alpine Grove Banquet Facility in Hollis. Eight Executive Chefs will have their culinary creativity challenged by 4 secret ingredients.
The evening kicks off with hundreds of unique appetizers, such as short ribs with a special glaze and lobster fritters, from each of the competing chefs for guests to sample. Guests will vote for the “People’s Choice” during the cocktail hour. Then the fun begins as the chefs learn the secret ingredients and the competition gets underway. Event host Mike Morin, co-host of “The Chef’s Plate-A Taste of New England” on WBIN TV circulates among the chefs with the “play-by-play” of the culinary action.
Once again, the action will be broadcast on 2 large screens, placed at each end of the facility, to enhance viewing of the culinary action. Finally, each chef is called to present their creation to the Judges. This year’s Judges include Chef Nicole Barreira, Corporate Chef and Marketing Manager for Great NH Restaurants and Kathleen Palmer, Features Editor for the Nashua Telegraph, and Helen Ryba, Host of “ The Chef’s Plate-A Taste of New England “on WBIN TV. Chef Matthew Morin from Silverstone Living currently holds the coveted title of Top Chef.
