Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament

Does watching a live competition of local chefs pitted against each other, Iron Chef-style, sound like fun to you? Then you should attend the Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament! This foodie experience is a multi-week event showcasing some of the area's finest chefs while providing an evening of entertainment AND dining.

In addition to enjoying a four-course meal while watching the chefs compete, twenty-five audience members can participate each night as judges, tasting the chefs' creations and voting alongside the panel of expert judges.

General admission tickets cost $55 and include dinner. Judging Experience tickets are $75 and include both dinner and a chance to taste and vote on the chefs' wares. In addition, 10% of the net profit from ticket sales goes directly to Moveable Feast, a local non-profit that provides meal delivery service to homebound People Living with AIDS/HIV, and women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their families.

Next week is Moveable Feast Week and an additional 10% (20% total) of net profits will be donated to the charity. On Monday June 28th, Chad Novak of Don't Know Tavern will do battle against Thomas Friend of Skipjack's Restaurant & Crab House. On Tuesday, June 29th, Michael Ledesma of Leelyns will face Francisco Lopez of Federales.

Please use this opportunity have a good time AND help those in need by attending an event. Please enter sponsor code "MOV101" when you place your order.

Such a good idea- including the judging. Better than the chef competitions when they bring in non-foodies like Real Housewives to judge...

We attended on June 29, when Michael Ledesma and Joel Southworth of Lee Lynne's Dining Room and Lounge won their first round against Franciso Lopez of Federales restaurant. It was a very unique experience and alot of fun. We were able to taste the entrees of both competitors and the tastiest entree did win. We will be back at the Belvedere on August 10 to cheer Mike and Joel on to victory.
