Cocalico announces annual chef competition
The Cocalico Education Foundation will host its Seventh Annual Iron Chef Cocalico culinary event, 1-5 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at Cocalico High School. The event incorporates food, entertainment and artwork to raise funds for educational opportunities for students and adults in the Cocalico School District.
Chef Scott Snyder from Ephrata Community Hospital, chef David Shefter from Penn Werner Hotel and chef Kelly Kapinos from Lily's on Main will compete for the title of Iron Chef. Chef Tom Gillin, host of Blue Ridge Cable-11's "Cooking for Class," and chef Bill Scepansky of Smart Partner will serve as emcees. Corporate event sponsors and local food purveyors will supply fresh ingredients, some of which will be a mystery to the chefs until the start of the completion.
In addition to the culinary challenge, guests can sample and judge the People's Choice Competition "On The Boardwalk.'' Chef Michael Durante, Historic Reinholds Inn; chef Jaimie Hanna, Reflections; Dave Kowalchick of Dave's Diner in Adamstown, and Irene Pascal from Spring Glen Fresh Foods will enter.
Admission is $15 per adult and $8 per student, grades K-12. Visit online at cocalico.org for more information.
