The friendliest rivalry in town! Watch amateur chef teams compete in two heats to create the best dishes from a mystery basket of ingredients.
With celebrity judges Mayor Gale Pospisil, Olivier Bourgion (The Wine Guy) and Chef Mark Segovia (Buttermilk Cafe). Commentary by radio personality David Ferguson.
The Showdown pits eight amateur competitors against each other in two heats (four chefs per heat). Each team is asked to prepare a dish using a gas grill to cook mystery ingredients in twenty minutes. Teams have access to a common pantry to complete their meals. Dishes are judged on taste, creativity, presentation, wine pairing and performance under pressure.
