HOT(el) Chef Throwdown

Calling All Hotel Chefs for a Special Culinary Event!

Our 2nd Annual HOT(el) Chef Throwdown in July 2022 was a great success!

In partnership with the World Food Championships and Dallas College, we gave of our best chefs a chance to show off their talents and help us raise money for future members of the hospitality industry.  The best part? Those chefs duked it out to earn one of five spots – a “golden ticket” – to compete in this year’s World Food Championship, November 9-13th at Dallas' Fair Park.

This year, there were 5 categories – Dessert, Rice & Noodle, Sandwich, Seafood, and Vegetarian from which to choose.  Only one Golden Ticket per category was available. The five highest-scoring Chefs won a golden ticket into the World Food Championships' category of his/her choice. In addition to free entry into the Ultimate Food Fight in November, the top three highest-scoring Chefs won a cash prize!

The competition is for hotel Executive Chefs, Sous Chefs, Pastry Chefs, or up-and-coming Chefs.  The Chef’s were challenged to create their best dish in a timed, live cooking competition hosted at the Dallas College Culinary, Pastry and Hospitality Center.
