The show will be held in a 1,000 seat auditorium at The Charlotte Scottish Rite Theater 4740 Randolph Road. In attendance will be Top Local Chefs and the top brass of the local ACF Chapter. We are raising money for two local charities. Many Restaurants and local purveyors have donated prizes.

The Game show has three competition categories, a Jeopardy style Q&A round with “lock out buzzers” and contestant podiums. Second round. A hands on challenge “Beat the Clock” style,using pastry bags, whisks and channel knives.In the last leg of the evening a “blind palate test”Culinary Students will be picked from the audience to compete. prizes are still rolling in, many companies are being supportive and generous.
