Sunday, July 29th 7:00 pm Buy Tickets


Based on television’s popular Iron Chef and other competitive cooking shows, Bloomington’s premiere culinary event is a competition where 3 local chefs have an hour to create a winning dish featuring a local secret ingredient announced at the start. The dishes are judged by a panel of 4 judges and the top chef is awarded the coveted Golden Spatula.

The event also features a live auction of culinary items and dinner packages, local restaurant trivia with prizes, roving hors d’oeuvres from local chefs and business, as well as a cash bar. It’s a power-packed two hours of excitement, highlighting Bloomington’s culinary talent with all proceeds benefiting Community Kitchen of Monroe County and its efforts to alleviate hunger in Monroe County.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6pm, and the event will last roughly 2 hours.
