Tickets available for celebrity chef cook-off
MILTON, DEL. — Tickets are available for the Milton Historical Society’s annual King Cole Cannery Celebrity Chef Cook-Off from 5:30 to 830 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Milton Fire Hall.
Guests will sample creative dishes prepared specially for this exciting competition by these seven local chefs Mike Clampitt, Po’ Boys Creole Restaurant; Mary Gaffney, A Different Kitchen; Chris Parker, Lupo Italian Kitchen; Drew Boyle, Bethany Blues (Lewes); Vincent Modesto, The Butcher Block; Kevin Reading, Abbott’s Grill; Nate Griffith, Gilligan’s Restaurant and Bar (coming to Milton soon).
Each of the chefs has extensive culinar y training and experience in restaurants and the food service industry. They have generously agreed to create tasting plates that include Delawarefarmed fruit and/or vegetables that would have been processed at the historic King Cole Cannery in Milton. The chefs also have the option of using beef provided by The Butcher Block and chicken provided by Allen Harim Foods. Savoring the talents of the chefs as they work with Sussex County’s bounty of foods and flavors makes this event one of the most popular of the year.
The chefs will compete for a “People’s Choice” award and a “Critic’s Choice” award. The “People’s Choice” award is decided by the votes of attending guests after sampling each Chef’s creation. Upping the ante on this year’s cook-off are three celebrity judges who will determine the “Critic’s Choice” award. The MHS is pleased to welcome Bob Yesbek, Denise Clemons, and Eban Brittingham as judges for the “Critic’s Choice” award.
There will be live music performed by Jeff Evans, complimentary appetizers and desserts, and a fabulous basket raffle — many beautiful baskets filled to the brim with exciting gifts. All baskets are valued over $150. There will also be a silent auction for a four-digit Delaware tag and a 50/50 raffle with extra prizes.
