The Farm to Table Chefs Taste Challenge (CTC), scheduled for Friday, August 7 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, aims to broaden awareness for the use of fresh, healthy, sustainable ingredients in preparing food. Ten chefs from various geographical regions across the United States will compete to create the best dish that utilizes farm-fresh items from a pantry of seasonal ingredients donated by State Agricultural Departments.
The term “farm to table” indicates locally-sourced product, but this unique national competition will showcase what locavores are eating around the country. It’s pineapples from Hawaii, seafood from the Gulf of Mexico or Yellow Squash from Texas, attendees will experience the best and freshest ingredients, all in a single dining event.
