Nickel City Chef Season 2: Call for Challengers

16 Nov

Applications for challengers for season 2 of Nickel City Chef are available here and due 12/23.

For the uninitiated, it’s an Iron Chef-style competition pitting local challenger chefs against the “Nickel City Chefs”, Adam Goetz (SAMPLE), Paul Jenkins (Tempo), JJ Richert (Torches), and Krista VanWagner (Curly’s).

Nickel City Chef takes place in one of the city’s best kept secrets–a fully restored turn-of-the-century warehouse on Buffalo’s West Side (home to Artisan Kitchens & Baths). Completely outfitted with two competition-worthy kitchens, this unique setting is the ideal location for guests to enjoy snacks and drinks while experiencing this one-of-a-kind cooking competition first hand.

The audience watches as the Nickel City Chefs and their challengers attempt to create the three best dishes in under an hour. They will employ classic and modern techniques in order to showcase their skills and the secret ingredient. All of Nickel City Chef’s secret ingredients come from right here in Western New York.

Guest judges (from as far as Toronto and Philadelphia) and local food professionals will determine which chef prepares the most technically perfect, creative and delicious cuisine. As a member of the audience, you’ll even have a say by voting for your favorite.
