Garlic Showdown

The Pros Take the Stage in an Iron Chef-Style Showdown

2017 Garlic Showdown Winner Chef Carlos Pineda


In the Garlic Showdown, each chef has to use a top-secret ingredient (not revealed until the competition begins) to prepare two entrees and side dishes. A panel of judges will determine the winner based on presentation, originality, flavor, texture, and use of the “secret ingredient.”
