The Treasure Coast MASTERCHEF Competition

The Treasure Coast MASTERCHEF Competition is an event that highlights some of the Best Chefs on the Treasure Coast! At a preliminary event, 10 Chefs will present an appetizer for event attendees and a panel of industry-leading judges to taste and vote for their favorites. The judges will select the Top 4 Best Appetizers of the night, and those Chefs will move on to the finale. At the semi-formal finale event, the Top 4 Chefs will create a “MASTERCHEF” worthy dish. Attendees and judges will once again taste and vote for their favorite dish of the night. 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 trophies.
