Celebrity Chefs Compete in Culinary Competition
envIRONmental CHEF homegrown fundraising event at Baltimore Woods Nature Center focuses on local foods

The crowd roars encouragement, and food sizzles on hot grills while four celebrity chefs go head-to-head in a cook off competition. Using only locally grown and produced foods, the chefs dazzle with their creative concoctions and culinary skills. Sous chefs drawn from patron ticket holders assist in the prep work—chopping, dicing, slicing— alongside these master chefs. A panel of experts weighs in on the culinary creations, then, after everyone samples the foods, the audience picks the winning Chef. Come be part of the inaugural envIRONmental CHEF homegrown at Baltimore Woods event!

Celebrating the abundance of locally grown and produced foods in Central New York, Steve Landon, Farm to Table Chef; Joelle Mollinger, Joelle’s French Bistro; Ellen Leahy, bc; and Alicyn Hart, Circa, join this cook-off challenge competition on Sunday, September 18, 2011, from 4:00 to 6:30pm. The event takes place at Baltimore Woods Nature Center, 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus. Putting together the best in local culinary masters with the best in local food, this is an evening of entertainment and culinary pleasure. Beer will be provided by Middle Ages Brewery and wine courtesy of Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars. Enjoy an evening at The Woods, while helping support the nature center at this fundraiser for this local gem of the CNY community.

“Baltimore Woods Nature Center’s mission is to connect people with the natural world surrounding us. Since food is one of our most fundamental connections to nature, an event showcasing the many ways to eat locally, and the benefits to our physical, mental and community health is an important part of our work,” says Patty Weisse, Executive Director of the nature center.

Taste the abundance of the region —tables manned by local food producers and growers showcase locavore products throughout the event. The list of participants grows daily, and includes Middle Ages Brewing Company; Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars, Farmshed CNY, Cafe Kabul, Harvest Homes Organics, Small Potatoes Sales and Market, Schoolhouse Farm, JAVA-GOURMET, Seneca Salt Company, Pride of NY, Byrne Dairy, South Side Innovation Center of Syracuse University (SSIC) and the Northeast Organic Farm Association–NY (NOFA-NY). The Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics of Cornell University will be unveiling two new varieties of potatoes at the event.

Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, contributing editor for Edible Finger Lakes magazine and author of a blog advocating locally grown and produced foods is the guest emcee for the evening. “This will be the first time these great chefs will be going toe-to-toe in our version of Kitchen Stadium. It will be a fun night to support Baltimore Woods, a gem of a local resource,” says Baskerville- Burrows. A self-described foodie, her blog www.CookinIntheCuse.com is an important resource for the local food movement.

EnvIRONmental CHEF homegrown is held in the memory of Jean Graham of Skaneateles. Graham touched many lives in the community through her work as a teacher, volunteer, and leader. Sponsors, including Clear Channel Radio, Upstate Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, C & S Companies and Plank Road Magazine are lining up to underwrite and support this community event.

Ticket sales have begun. Patron level: $100/pp includes a chance to be a sous-chef, and a mystery swag bag; General admission: $75/pp.
