Mason-Dixon Master Chef Tournament 2015 Updates

If you haven't yet made it to any of the battles, do go! It's so much fun!

The field of 16 top area chefs has been narrowed to the top 10 as the Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament prepares to complete Round 1 of competition next week.

After just three weeks of competition and six matches, the field of chefs competing in The Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament (www.MDMasterChef.com) is starting to dwindle, while the money raised for Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland (the Tournament’s charity partner, who receives 10% of the proceeds) continues to rise.

Remaining chefs include:

Christopher Vocci, Alexandra’s at Turf Valley
Wilbur Cox, Jr., Bistro Rx
Cole Whaley, Café Rue
Lanydrek Christ Pandzou, Colony South Hotel
Rick Koplau, Duke’s Grocery
Sean Praglowski, Luckie’s Tavern
Jirat Suphrom-In, My Thai
Melissa Fordham, Personal Chef Services
Bill Kelley, Renditions Golf
Jeff Keeney, Tark’s Grill

With Battle Backyard BBQ, Battle Breakfast and Battle Chocolate over, the remaining chefs are looking forward to Battle Comfort Food next week to finish off Round 1. The Tournament was dark this week in observance of Independence Day, but will resume on Monday, July 13 and Tuesday, July 14 with the following match ups:

Monday, July 13
Melissa Fordham
Personal Chef Services/Blue Bistro & Catering/Gourmet Again
Wilbur Cox, Jr.
Bistro Rx

Tuesday, July 14
Sean Praglowski
Luckie's Tavern

Competition will continue with Round 2 beginning July 20 and 21.
