Chefs to battle it out in Food Fight


May 9, 2019 by admin

The knives are out and being sharpened for a battle which will pit the Hunter’s best chefs against their Sydney counterparts.

Hunter Chefs & Co, a not-for-profit organisation, will host the third annual Food Fight on Monday at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.

In the Hunter corner will be team captain Jamie Ryan, of Caves Beachside Hotel, Tim Montgomery, of Bacchus, Emerson Rodriguez, of Emerson’s at Pokolbin, and Troy Rhoades-Brown, of Muse.

“I’m looking forward to tasting what the Sydney boys will bring to the table. We’re going to give it everything we’ve got and we expect to create a serious buzz for the region on the day,” Ryan said.

The Sydney team taking on the Hunter Region is Matt Kemp, formerly of Balzac, Warren Turnbull, of Assiette, Colin Fassnidge, of Four in Hand, and leading Sydney culinary personality Justin North, who will complete the group.

The chefs will compete by creating a delectable meal using fresh Hunter region ingredients such as lamb and pork shoulder, spanner crab and calamari.

The 250 luncheon guests will be able to view the kitchen battle via a live video feed as their food is being prepared. Peter Everett, of Ready Steady Cook fame, will MC the event and the winning team will be judged by attendees on the day.

Funds raised by the event will go to the Brett Graham Scholarship, which gives an apprentice chef the opportunity to be flown to London to work alongside highly acclaimed chef Brett Graham at his renowned restaurant The Ledbury, in Notting Hill.

Tickets are $90 for Hunter Chefs & Co members and $130 for other guests. Locally brewed beer and premium Hunter Valley wine will be provided.
