Battle of the Chefs is an event where guests are a part of a Live studio audience! The Grand Finale, will take place on May 8, 2018 at AV Irvine near the Irvine Spectrum! Doors open at 6:00pm. Two of the best chefs from OC are chosen, at random, to face off. These chefs will be donating their time, talent and treasures to battle for the title of OC’s best Chef and to make their community a better place. Our Expert Panel will critique the Chef’s performance but all voting is done by the studio audience. The Chefs will be given a topic for battle: Paella, Street Food, Pasta, ect. The chefs will then prepare their interpretation of this dish for 250 guests of the audience, who will then vote for which chef they believe should advance in the competition.
