It’s chef vs. chef vs. chef vs. chef vs. chef vs. chef at the 2016 Diamond Chef “Recut!” competition set for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 21, at Pulaski Technical College’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality Institute, 13000 Interstate 30 in Alexander.
Competing head-to-head in “quick-fire challenges” will be Little Rock’s hottest stovemeisters Philippe Ducrot of the Culinary Institute; Donnie Ferneau, the executive chef of the 1836 Club; Bonner Cameron of Bistro Catering & Gourmet Take Away; Angela Nix, executive chef of The Quarter; Justin Patterson, executive chef of The Southern Gourmasian; and Jason Knapp, executive chef for Sysco Arkansas.

A mystery ingredient that chefs will have to incorporate prominently in their three required courses will be announced 60 minutes before the grand finale. Sous chefs will help. Signature cocktails and international hors d’oeuvres will be served to those watching the sumptuous showdown, and attendees will be able to buy chances for a “Bon Apetit Bag Pull” lottery for gifts of merchandise or culinary events and the “Wine Pull.” Single tickets are $125; for more information, call Shannon Boshears at 812-2221.
