We hosted our very first Treasure Coast MasterChef Competition at the Elks Lodge in Vero Beach on Tue, Feb 22nd, 2022! It’s an event that highlights some of the Best Chefs on the Treasure Coast! The chefs competing were chosen by a panel of judges at The Golden Fork Awards ceremony that took place on Tuesday, Feb 8th, 2022. Each chef presented a dish for our judges to taste, and the Top 4 moved on to compete. At the MasterChef event, each chef created a “MasterChef” worthy dish for our guests and our judges to taste and vote for their favorite! A final dessert course and the table centerpieces were provided by Tara’s Treats, a new local bakery in Vero Beach. At the end of the evening, we presented our winners with a Judge’s Choice and a People’s Choice trophies at the awards ceremony!
I’d like to personally say THANK YOU to our event sponsors, without them, events like this are not possible! Carpet & Tile Warehouse, Complete Restaurant Equipment & Supplies, Tara’s Treats, and Kaydi Devlin Events!
