What is Canned Sedona? Here is the answer in a nutshell:
5 Benefitting local charities
4 Amateur chefs competing on BBQ’s
3 Local restaurant chef judges
2 Rounds of great friendly competition
1 Canned Sedona Champion
How does it work?
The competition is based on the Food Network’s show CHOPPED.
Four of the charities are being represented by the 4 competitors. These charities benefit from your entrance fee donation. Tickets are $15 in advance on line or $20 at the door. VIP Lounge tickets are $40/$50 When buying a ticket spectators choose which charity they want to support or which chef they want to win. Part of the entrance fee is a can of food to be donated to the Sedona Community Food Bank. The Food Bank is our blanket charity (hence the name Canned) but the other four charities change every year, and fall under the categories of:
– Arts & Culture
The chefs have no idea what they will be cooking. They will get their basket ingredients at 2:00 and be given money to go shopping. At 3:00 the competition starts and they will have a specific amount of time to finish their first dish to present to the judges for tasting. The dishes are judged on Taste, Presentation and Creativity. Only two competitors will move on to the second round where they will have a new set of ingredients to cook and impress the judges with. One will win the title of Canned Sedona Champion.
The chefs are competing for fun, bragging rights and a huge basket of goodies.
The competition is action packed and a lot of fun. As the chefs hurry to create their dishes, we will be giving away door prizes and there are amazing raffle and silent auction prizes to help raise even more money for the charities!
