The Eat It and Like It Iron Chef Challenge

The ultimate in chef showdowns is coming to Savannah.   Eat It and Like It is partnering with the Southern Women’s Show to host the inaugural “Iron Chef Challenge”…Savannah’s first chef competition!  On Sunday, February 17, 2013, four local chefs will face off to see whose cuisine reigns supreme!

Savannah’s Iron Chef Challenge will follow the same basic structure as the network show.  Each chef will be responsible for cooking and presenting two dishes within a one hour time limit. The dishes must be either an appetizer or entree or two entrees.  In addition, these dishes must all contain a secret ingredient that will be revealed the day of the competition.  A panel of judges then decides the winner by rating their plates on presentation, originality, and taste. Our panel of judges consists of chefs/restaurant owners in the Savannah area. One of those judges might even be you!

The battle begins at 1:30 on Sunday, February 17th at the Southern Women’s Show to be held at the International Trade and Convention Center.

The winning chef will receive the title of Iron Chef 2013 and a chance to defend this title at next year’s competition.

      We’ve heard great things about Chef Nick! This year our Iron Chef Challenge is comprised of chefs at restaurants. We hope to expand and grow this to include those that work at or own catering companies.
