competition dining series | 02

the premilinary round of the greenville competition dining series has wrapped up, and i am really excited to tell you that i will be a media judge at one of the quarterfinal battles taking place next week. i would love it if you would join me on august 26th at larkins sawmill to try some off-the-menu food from two great local chefs. remember, audience votes count for 70% of the scoring, so your vote has a lot of sway. chef teryi youngblood of passerelle bistro will be competing against cheff todd warden of the cliffs valley, and if that isn’t enticing enough already, check out what they made for the last round:
