It's that time again - time for the Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament!
This season brings a new venue that we're pretty excited about - Points South Latin Kitchen in Fells Point. It's one of our favorite restaurants, so we know that not only will the competition be exciting but the food available for purchase during the matches will be top notch.
The chefs competing this time around come from all over the area:
James Patton, Admiral Fell Inn
Jacob Nelson, Black Eyed Suzie’s
Jonathan Hicks, Cosima
Joel Young, Hudson Coastal
Brigitte Bledsoe, Miss Shirley’s Café

To see their initial match-ups,. check out www.MDMasterchef.com.
The competition starts this coming Monday June 5th and runs Mondays and Tuesdays for the next 8 weeks.
Tickets for most matches are $45 per person and include a wine tasting by Boordy Vineyards, passed hors d'oeuvres, the competition, dessert, and coffee. Plus, this year, ALL tickets are "Judging Experience" tickets, meaning that all guests can taste each dish produced by the chefs and be part of the voting to decide the winner.
A portion of the proceeds goes to the very worthy Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland.
So what are you waiting for? Get yourself some tickets and hope to see you there!
