We’re excited for the Season 2 Chef Duel Grand Finale!! Join Folktale in their Barrel Room on Monday, June 4th from 6-9pm to witness these top chefs go head-to-head in a final battle in the barrel room for the title of Chef Duel Champion!

Chef Duel – Grand Finale
Chef William Bennett (Corral de Tierra Country Club)
Chef John Paul Lechtenberg (The Hollins House – Restaurant)
Chef Brad Briske (HOME Restaurant)

Pastry Duel
Ron Mendoza (Revival Ice Cream)
Michelle Lee (the C restaurant + bar)

This isn’t just another cooking competition that you sit back and watch; you get to be part of the action! Get up close and watch these chefs as they work their magic on stage. In this bracketed event, each chef will be provided one main ingredient that MUST be used along with four optional ingredients to create a dish that will excite your palate, earn your vote (The People’s Choice), and advance them to the next round.

The People’s Choice vote counts for 50% of the voting process and the guest judges’ vote comprise the remaining 50%. If both votes award the same chef the winner, that chef advances to compete again. If there is a split vote, the chefs will compete in an additional challenge, pre-selected by the judges, in order to win the title of Chef Duel Champion!

Each Chef’s dishes will be paired by either a Folktale Wine or a Guest Winery’s wine. Joining us for the Grand Finale is Holman Ranch!

They’ll also have seasonally-inspired cuisine available for purchase, crafted by Folktale’s own Chef Danny Leach. Wine, beer, and soda will be available at one of our bars.

Tickets are $20 each. Be sure to grab yours before we sell out!

Folktale Winery’s “Chef Duel” will be hosted by Chef Todd Fisher with entertainment provided by DJ Darion. This is an age 21+ event. Make sure to tag all of your photos with #FolktaleChefDuel!
