Welcome to Garlic Chef Stadium, the areas first Event Chef Showcase featuring local chefs all competing against one another to take home the title of South Florida Garlic Chef 2017!
At its heart, the South Florida Garlic Fest is about exploring the culinary possibilities of GARLIC. Center stage in that culinary quest is Garlic Chef Stadium where the finest chefs in South Florida compete for the distinguished title “Garlic Chef”.
The spirited competition pits each chef and their handpicked team in an identical mystery basket cooking competition. Mystery ingredients have included the weird and the wonderful, bison, geoduck clams, wild boar, alligator, fruit roll-ups and ostrich eggs. The pressure to perform is intense but friendly in front of a boisterous audience cheering on their culinary champions!
Five will compete…only one wins the crown!
Will we crown a new Garlic Chef or will Chef Eric Baker, of Max’s Harvest, bring home the championship again?
The event is staffed by 20 local organizations who volunteer at the South Florida Garlic Fest providing our youth opportunities to learn life’s important lessons of teamwork and collaboration.
