Looking for a way to heat up your springtime in Northern Michigan? Look no further than the Springtime Splendor Week at the 2nd Annual Chef’s Challenge at Shanty Creek. What could be more fun than a food fight? A little healthy competition in celebration of the greatest food and food talent that Michigan has to offer?
The finest Chef teams from Northern & Southern Michigan will again compete in the 2nd Annual event at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire on April 24-26. The event celebrates Springtime Splendor Week in Michigan, and highlights Michigan’s great Agricultural diversity and growing wine & micro-brew industries.
The North vs. South competition on Saturday will again feature fantastic entrÃ©e samplings by twelve Chef teams, complimented by fine Michigan wine and micro-brew tastings. North & South winning teams will be chosen by the public and several professional culinary judges, and face off in an â€œIron Chefâ€ competition dinner that evening. Chef Eric Villegas of â€œFork in the Roadâ€ TV fame, and Chef Michelle Bommarito, frequent participant on Food Channel competitions, are among the judges at the Iron Chef show-down.
