4th Annual Iron Chef Market Cook-Off 
Wednesday September 28th 10:30am to 1pm
Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market Louis St. Lot 

On Wednesday September 28th, the Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market will host our fourth annual Iron Chef Market Cook-Off Challenge. Four local chefs will be given identical baskets full of fresh, seasonal fall produce, local meats & cheeses, and other market goods. They will also be given $10 worth of Nourish Market Dollars to select & purchase a ‘special ingredient’ from any market vendor.

     At 10:30am, Chefs will be given 1.5 hours to create a seasonal dish on-site that will be sampled and rated by a panel of guest judges at 12pm.  One local Chef will be crowned the 4th Annual Market Iron Chef by creating an innovative dish that showcases local products, uses everything in the basket & is of course, delicious.

Chefs include returning Champion Steve Elmhirst from Elmhirst’s Resort, Bonnie Kubica from BE Catering, Jordan from Electric City Bread Company and Kerri Neimi from the Sapphire Room. Judges Dean Pappas,Pete Dalliday & Catherine Hanrahan will have the challenging job of tasting and analyzing the deliciously local dishes created by our Chefs.

Join us to learn creative ways to use fresh market goods, learn what is in season, get inspired by local Chefs, & enjoy a wonderful fall day at the Downtown Farmers’ Market.  The Downtown Farmers’ Market is open every Wednesday, 8:30-2:00pm until our final market for the season on October 26th.
