Golden Basket - Chef Application
The 2019 Golden Basket is a State College area local cooking competition, using ingredients sourced from our local farmers markets. Qualifying rounds will be held at four local farmers markets, where chefs will be presenting plated samples of their prepared dishes, and market shoppers voting for one winner per market. Winning chefs will advance to the Golden Basket Finals, a part of a ticketed event held Saturday, August 3, from 4-9pm downtown State College.
This is your opportunity to showcase creative use of our local bounty, and compete for the Happy Valley Top Chef title!
Qualifying Competition Rules:
-Chefs will have a $100 budget to shop for ingredients from any participating market leading up to their qualifier.
