Palm Springs, CA – The first annual Crater Lake CHEF CHALLENGE just completed the fourth week of competition in its new valley-wide Chefs’ cook-off. The eight-week Chefs’ cook-off is being sponsored by Crater Lake Vodka, Fixtures Living and RR Broadcasting, and takes place every Wednesday from 4pm to 6pm at the Fixtures Living store on Highway 111 in Rancho Mirage. The public is invited to attend the weekly Chefs’ cook-off and register to win multiple door prizes, including a trip to Sedona, AZ, a 3 day/2 night stay for two at Miracle Springs Resort and Spa, a Big Green Egg grill/smoker and more!
To participate, each chef must create an innovative entrée, and either a dessert or an appetizer that features Crater Lake Vodka as the signature ingredient. Celebrity judges evaluate the dishes based on creativity, taste and presentation. Chef Anthony Santucci from Capri Restaurant at Miracle Springs Resort, DHS, and Chef Matt Lehman of Stuft Pizza in Old Town La Quinta went head to head this week. Chef Matt made Chilled Lobster Stack with a Jalapeño Vodka reduction and Snoop Lion Sea bass. Chef Anthony made an Asian Coleslaw with grilled pork tenderloin in an espresso vodka marinade and seafood with pepper Vodka. Chef Matt Lehman from Stuft Pizza won this week’s competition, and will move on to the semi-final round.
The eight-week Crater Lake CHEF CHALLENGE culminates with a final round of competition where each of the weekly winners will compete to win a special Grand Prize Package, and the title of Crater Lake Master Chef.
