Local Chef Challenge


On March 31st & April 1st Minnesota Monthly is putting on the Local Chef Challenge at the Mall of America.

I love Top Chef because it is amazing to watch the talent that chefs have. Here is the chance for one of the 8 local Minnesota chefs to become the Top Chef of Minnesota and we get to watch it up close and personal. It will be interesting to see what they bring to the table with all the different styles that they cook in.  Each chef will go head to head in a battle royal for foodies in the MOA rotunda.

Chefs include Doug Flicker of Piccolo, Jim Christiansen, Patrick Atanalian of Sanctuary, Jim Kyndberg of Crave, Christopher Thompson of Masu Sushi and Robata, Landon Schoenfeld of Hautedish, Vincent Francoual of Vincent, and lastly Jack Riebel of Bucher & the Boar. My money is on Doug Flicker or Jack Riebel.

Check out more information here.

I look forward to attending this event. See you there.


Because talent should be appreciated.
