Ever wish you could be a judge on one of those cooking competition shows that are so popular nowadays? WHYY’s 2nd Annual “Best of the Chefs” event, coming up on Thursday, June 20th, is your chance to get a taste of the power of judgement, as well as a taste of some of the best bites that Philadelphia restaurants have to offer.
From 7 to 9 p.m., chefs from across the Delaware Valley will occupy WHYY’s headquarters on North 6th Street, and will cook up a storm, vying for guest’s votes. Chefs from Bar Ferdinand, Kennett Restaurant, and City Tavern, among others, will compete in categories such as Best Bite, Best Dessert, and the overall winner, Best of the Chefs. Unlike so many other cooking events and competitions, accolades are not doled out by a panel sitting on high – it is event guests themselves who cast the ballots and decide the outcome!
Last year, Nomad Pizza won “Best of the Chefs;” who will take the prize this year?
Guests will also be treated to an outdoor summer beer garden, cocktails, and live music. All proceeds go to benefit WHYY. Be aware: Best of the Chefs is a WHYY members-only event. Members can purchase up to 2 tickets for $40 each. New or renewing WHYY members at the $120 level will receive a year-long membership to WHYY and 2 tickets to the event as a "thank you.” What a great reason to begin or renew your membership!
