Times-Record - - NEWS -

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.

Tick­ets are lim­ited. Con­tact the Mil­ton His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety at info@ his­toricmil­ton.com or call 302-6841010 to make your reser va­tion. Tick­ets are $45. All pro­ceeds go to sup­port the Mil­ton His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s many pro­grams and ex­hibits.
