Great Chefs of St. Augustine IV
Thursday, May 24, 2018, 6:00 - 10:00 p.m. at River House Events
Jacksonville Magazine is hosting The Great Chefs of St. Augustine IV this year at on Thursday, May 24, 2018, beginning at 6:00 p.m. This culinary competition between two teams of St. Augustine's top restaurants brings some of the area's finest food and drink to the table. The event will be held at The River House.
Ten of the area's top chefs will compete in two teams, Team Island and Team Mainland. Diners can indulge in four courses, sampling eight dishes in total, all of which will be prepared by the dueling teams and paired with wine. Guests will judge each course, picking one of the two dishes per course as their favorite. The ballots are then totaled to determine a winner, and in the event of a tie, there will be an invited panel of judges serving as an arbiter.
The Mainland Team (pictured above) will be made up of mixologist Jason Gustavson from Prohibition Kitchen and chefs John Botkin from Casa Monica Spa & Resort, Genie McNally from The Floridian, Matthew Brown from Collage, and Nils Rowland from Crème de la Cocoa.
The Island Team (photo in the gallery at left) will consist of chefs Ben Loose from Gas Full Service, Bob Henle from The Reef, Fred Underhill from Sunset Grille, Tasha Peters from By Design Catering, and mixologist Jason Barone from the Conch House for the Cocktail Competition.
This fundraiser will benefit Catholic Charities, a nonprofit organization that offers emergency assistance to those in need, including help with rent, utilities, mobility issues, case management and food. 100% of the proceeds from the Great Chefs of St. Augustine will go directly to the purchase of food for the Weekend Hunger Backpack Program and Back Roads Program, both of which provide nutritional food to children and families in the community.
