The Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament, a live, local, interactive culinary competition is down to two finalists in its summer-long single-elimination tournament.
The competition started with 16 top area chefs in June, and after seven weeks of head-to-head competition two have emerged as the top in the field. These two teams, Iron Bridge Wine Company (Columbia), and Bond Street Social (Baltimore), will compete in the final Championship match this coming Tuesday, August 27th.
The winning team will emerge with $1000 cash, $1000 in culinary prizes, the official Chef a la Mode Championship jacket, a plaque for the winning restaurant, and of course bragging rights as the 2013 Mason Dixon Master Chef Champions!
10% of each ticket sold goes directly to Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland, the competition’s charity partner.
Tickets*: $35 for general admission (includes tax)
$55 for judging experience (includes tax)
