Wow - what an event! The Centre Club hosted the 6th Annual Dueling Chefs Competition last friday night with Chef Gary Moran of Wimauma facing off again Chef Lance Kraebel of Jackson's Bistro all to support the Children's Cancer Center. Both chefs prepared a three-course dinner featuring the secret ingredient - the Poblano Pepper - which falls on the pepper scale somewhere in between a bell pepper and a jalepeno. Prepared by the chefs we saw Poblanos roasted and stuffed, paired with all kinds of ingredients from pork to seabass and in forms such as spoonbread and cheesecake. However, what I think may have taken the "cake" so-to-speak, was the Dulce de Leche, Sea Salt and Roasted Poblano Pie created by Chef Moran, who SWEPT the competition by winning both the Judge's votes and the People's Choice!
In addition to great food, the event featured our wandering Magician, Crash My Event Photo Booth, there was a live auction that included original paintings created by the Cancer Center's kids, as well as wine glass sales, which were also hand-painted by the kids at the Children's Cancer Center and sold at the event to raise additional dollars for the organization. While the numbers are still being finalized, the event certainly raised more than $13,000 for the Children's Cancer Center. Be sure to check out pictures from the event at relivetheevent.com!
We must extend thanks to both restaurants for participating, to Charley Belcher of Fox 13 for serving as Emcee for the event, to our Judges - Nick Peterson, winner of ABC's Bachelor Pad, Bridgette Mill, President and Publisher of the Tampa Bay Business Journal, and John Gilem, General Manager of Toyota of Tampa Bay. We had a number of very supportive sponsors, especially the Tampa Tribune and Morgan Auto Group, and we must all take our hats off to the event's chair, Patrick Moraites of Firm Consulting Group. Patrick serves on both the Board of Directors for the Children's Cancer Center and the Board of Governors for the Centre Club, this is his 6th AWESOME Dueling Chefs event. Thank you Patrick and well done by all!
