The Chef and Farmer Brunch Challenge will happen at a new location: Hotchkiss School’s Fairfield Farm in Lakeville, with spectacular views and a commercial kitchen for the chefs’ use. Inside an adjacent tent, each participating chef will have their own station where they will prepare a bountiful meal.

COST: Individual ticket: $65. Gold Ticket: $250. Table of 8: $1,000. Sponsor Gold Table: $2,500

A panel of local celebrity judges will determine the Farm to Table Chef Champion: Dafna Mizrahi, Monte’s Local Kitchen & Tap Room Chef and “Chopped” Champion; Dan Kish, Executive Chef of Panera Bread; Joan Osofsky of Hammertown Barn; and Dana Bowen, Every Day with Rachel Ray magazine. Competition categories include: Best Appetizer, Best Entree, Best Dessert, Best Table Presentation, and Farm to Table Chef Champion. In addition to the celebrity judges, attendees will vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The growing list of Brunch Challenge’s chefs and fine wines, spirits and brews includes:
52 Main Peony Vodka
McEnroe’s Organic Berkshire Distillery
Irving Farm Black Rabbit

Millbrook Winery When Pigs Fly

In addition to the farm-fresh cuisine, The Chef and Farmer Brunch Challenge will feature live music by the Latin rhythm and jazz band The Biocentrics, dancing and lawn games, and live and silent auctions.
