Event Details


Three seasoned chefs will match sharp knives and quick wits in a culinary showdown to benefit Founders Hall, a donor-supported education and recreation center for people age 60 and older.  Renowned judges, a splash of audience participation and the chance to help over 3,600 people will make this a rollicking, mouth-watering, soul-satisfying event. 


Battling chefs Brian Bender (David's Soundview Catering),  Zachariah Campion (Bailey's Backyard), and André Gainer (Luna Rossa) will open a basket of surprise ingredients and, in just 60 short minutes, compete to create the winning entrée while you cheer them on. 


A panel of experts will judge the chefs on their creativity, craftsmanship and culinary results. Judges include  Brendan Walsh, dean of culinary arts at the Culinary Institute of America, and former owner/executive chef at several restaurants, including The Elms in Ridgefield, CT. 

Ken Tuccio, host of 95.9 Fox radio's First Thing broadcast, will emcee the action.


Join the Battle to savor and judge appetizers created by three master chefs for this event. Mingle with the chefs before and after the competition; get up close and personal as they compete under pressure. Cheer them on while you feast on delicious hors d'oeuvres that feature the competition's secret ingredients, an open bar and gourmet sampling stations. If you want to taste the chefs' entrees, buy a seat at a special chef's table (a limited number of chef's table seats will be available). Delight in signature desserts from all three chefs. Take pride in supporting Founders Hall, which provides life-long learning to more than 3,600 people.
