CHATTANOOGA MARKET, SUNDAY, JULY 15th—One of our most anticipated annual “foodie” events of the season…Local chefs compete live at the Chattanooga Market under the pressure of patrons watching their every move. Five local chefs are chosen to compete in this event where they will have to be creative, quick-thinking and woo our judges.

It’s the culminating event of Chattanooga Magazine’s Restaurant Week (July 9th-15th), designed to celebrate & support our local food scene: the chefs, farms and the original restaurants in greater Chattanooga. (Check here for participating restaurants).

This will be a Team Tennessee sanctioned day event for the World Food Championships. What does this mean? Quite simply, a panel of judges will determine the winner who will receive a “golden ticket” to the 2018 World Food Championships.

The World Food Championships is the largest competition in Food Sport, where grand champions of previous events convene for a chance at winning the ultimate food crown and a share of hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money. The World Food Championships is also the springboard for many up and coming culinary stars and home cooks as they seek TV fame through many well-known food shows and acting opportunities.

The FiveStar Food Fight starts when the chefs arrive early, just before the Market opens, taking time to methodically set up their cooking stations equipped with their own knives, cooking supplies…and their best game. At 11:30 it’s time for them to shop for the fresh ingredients they will need to complete their main dish. The chefs are also given approximately 2 lbs of fresh Springer Mountain Farms chicken—the cuts are a complete surprise. Patrons are encouraged to watch & follow as the chefs choose amongst the freshest fruits, vegetables, spices, cheeses and more—right at the Market—to make their dish remarkable.

From about 12:00 till 2:00pm market-goers will watch the chefs demonstrate their culinary skills using FiveStar cooking ranges and presenting their dishes to our panel of judges.

It’s an exciting food event for everyone. See how shopping for local foods can easily, and affordably, be turned into something yummy and amazing!
