This Saturday, Sept. 11, the Downtown Farmers Market will present the fifth annual Chef Showdown in Pioneer Park. I'll be one of the four judges for the event. --- Three downtown chefs - Nathan Powers from Bambara (last year's champion), Jerry Liedtke from the Tin Angel Cafe and Charlie Perry from Eva - will have one hour to prepare three courses using products (plus one secret ingredient) they purchased at the Market that morning.

The secret ingredient must be used in the appetizer, entrée and dessert. Chefs will be given time to plan their menu and $60 to shop at the Market for the finest and freshest products from local growers and food vendors. They’ll choose from plums, peaches, berries, heirloom tomatoes, greens, sweet corn, melons, herbs, carrots, artisan cheese, lamb, beef, seafood and much more.


10:30 a.m.: Introductions and show begins

10:45-11:30 a.m.: Menu planning and shopping
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.: Cooking

12:30-1:00 p.m.: Final judging and awards

The Chef Showdown promotes the 8th annual downtown Dine O’Round: Sept. 17-Oct. 2.

Forty-three of Salt Lake City’s best downtown restaurants extend a special invitation to enjoy dining at an exceptional price. In addition to the regular menu, participating restaurants offer a three-course dinner for $15 or $30 per person; some also offer a two-course lunch for $5 or $10.
