The Treasure Coast MASTERCHEF Competition

The Treasure Coast MasterChef Competition returns in 2024!

The Treasure Coast MasterChef competition is back and better than ever, showcasing some of the best chefs on the Treasure Coast. At the preliminary event, up to 10 chefs will present an appetizer for attendees and a panel of industry-leading judges to taste and vote for their favorites. The judges will select the top four best appetizers of the night, and those chefs will move on to the semi-formal finale event.

At the finale, the top four chefs will present their “signature” entrees, which will be tasted and voted on by attendees and judges. The evening will conclude with an awards ceremony, where Thomas Miller, The Treasure Coast Foodie, will present a People’s and a Judges Choice MasterChef trophy.

Don’t miss your chance to taste some of the best culinary creations on the Treasure Coast and support the local culinary community. Tickets for the prelim and finale will be available in January 2024.

The students and chefs work together in an assembly-line fashion to build Chef Ted’s MasterChef dish!
