On Friday, Penticton’s first ever Chef’s Cook Off in Gyro Park, will have chefs putting up their best dishes — sponsored by Eckert Electric and hosted by the Downtown Penticton Association and Peachfest.
The Chef Cook Off will start its opening introductions at 2:30 p.m. to four of Penticton’s finest chef’s including: Chris Remington of the Lakeside, Chris Boehm of Burger 55, Kaila Klassen from the Guilty Kitchen and Darin Paterson of Bognars.
These four chef’s will square off in round one, whipping up an appetizer and main dish with a meat from Tony’s Meats, fresh veggies from Corbishley Farms and Upper Bench Fruit Farm.
Then comes the surprise ingredient. At the end of round one only two chef’s will remain to go head-to-head and create a delicious dessert — there will only be one Master Chef standing. To keep the crowd entertained there will be live music in the bandshell and MC Dennis Walker will keep the energy flowing. Andre’s Electronics has supplied two big TVs so everyone can watch the action.
This is a first time event for the Downtown Penticton Association in honour of the ongoing Peachfest celebrations. The event is free and the public is welcome to bring a blanket or chair so you can watch the excitement.
Round one judging is at 4 p.m. with round two following immediately. Final judging will be at 5 p.m.
