Duel Chef Showdown benefits Meals on Wheels!

On Monday, March 5th, two local chefs gathered at the Tin Whistle Irish Pub in Charlottesville for the 12th “Duel Chef Showdown.”  Junction’s Executive Chef Melissa Close-Hart and Tasting’s Executive Chef Michael Berry went head-to-head in a fun-filled and delicious competition with proceeds benefitting Meals on Wheels of Charlottesville/Albemarle.  

Diners were served an abundant four-course meal consisting of eight total plates – four dishes by each chef. The common ingredient in all the dishes was local Greenberry’s coffee. Following each course, each diner voted for their favorite dish -highlights included Melissa’s Mexicoke-Coffee BBQ Glazed Jumbo Shrimp, Plantain, Baby Romaine Hearts, Corn Salad with Cilantro-Buttermilk Dressing and Michael’s Sumatra Rubbed Brisket Lightly Smoked and Braised, Parsnip and Potato Puree, Bacon Buttered Brioche, Grilled Chicory with Tanzania Coffee Reduction. 

The evening, part of the first round of The Duel Chef Showdown, a tournament-style event sponsored by the Tin Whistle Irish Pub, I Love CVille and Scotology, with each showdown benefitting a different local charity.  Juction’s Melissa easily won the night, with the largest recorded margin of victory, and now moves to the final four.  On June 11, 2018, she will battle Tavern & Grocery’s David Morgan for a place in the finals.

“What an amazing event,” said one diner, “We got to sample the work of local master chefs and help our community at the same time. I want to attend every Showdown!”  A great time was had by all as the chefs battled for votes and the diners relished in their efforts, but, of course, the real winner was Meals on Wheels of Charlottesville/Albemarle.  Many thanks to all for making this possible!
