Top Chef of Polk County

Monday, April 20, 2015
6:00 PM t The Lakeland Center 

Due to the overwhelming appeal of great food as featured on today’s television programming, increasingly high-profile chefs are being recognized for their culinary genius.  That energy, excitement and epicurean entrees are coming to Polk County!  The Achievement Academy is proud to announce a new and fun-filled event, “Top Chef of Polk County,” which places the spotlight on the area’s leading chefs while raising funds for the Achievement Academy.  This is a one-of-a-kind event!

As many as 15 of Polk County’s premier chefs will be invited to participate in this culinary extravaganza with each chef creating their own menu and preparing tableside a five-course meal with accompanying wine (or other libations) for a table of 12.  Each Chef will create an ambience as unique as their culinary creations.  An all-star panel of judges will rate each Chef on the taste of their creations and award the title of “Top Chef of Polk County.”  Guests will rate the table and its Chef on a list of qualities that will include taste, menu selection, food presentation, wine pairings, tableside manner (“Personality!”) and a host of others that will combine to crown the “Top Chef of Polk County People’s Choice.”  Awards will also recognize the “Top Philanthropic Chef” winner as well as the “Top Table Decor.”

This is a night and an experience that will not be forgotten!
