Ellis River Riders, Inc.

2017 Top Chef Series

Mission: To provide an alternate, friendly competition for friends, family, and spectators which is open to members, non-members, and the public. To provide an alternate way for volunteer points to be earned and a fun interactive fundraiser for the Club.

Each month is a different theme for the main dish and the dessert. There is no cost to enter BUT you will receive 5 volunteer points for EACH donation to the Food Booth. So….. 10 points can be earned each contest!  

May 21 – Stew and Cookies

August 5 – Corn Chowder and Cupcakes

October 1 – Chili and Apple 

  1. Entries need to be on the grounds, preheated and ready to serve by 10:30 am. There is no extra room in the food booth to heat the entries.
  2. Please bring all main dish entries in a crockpot with a serving spoon.
  3. Please provide one indoor/outdoor extension cord with your name on it. Masking tape works well.
  4. Crockpots will not be washed in the food booth. 
  5. Please provide a label with title of your entry, no names. It is helpful if dairy, nuts, gluten, or other common allergens were used. This will allow more people to sample safely if there are concerns about ingredients. You can provide copies of your recipe.
  6. Desserts should be single serve proportions: suggested size is one tablespoon of dough for cookies, mini cupcakes, and regular sized cupcake liners for apple dessert. Larger cupcakes will not be turned away, but we can serve more people if they are minis.  Please pre-cut the apple dishes into the larger cupcake liners.
  7. Dessert samples should be on a tray with entry name on the underside so it can be returned. Please cover your entry either in an enclosed container to with foil or plastic wrap.
  8. Judging will be by paid voting ticket only.  One voting ticket for $5 to sample all hot dishes entered and/or one voting ticket for $2 to sample all desserts entered can be purchased at Food Booth. This is per person for one serving of each entry. Each person sampling will need to purchase a ticket whether they choose to vote or not.
  9. Awards for the day and the year will be presented.
  10. We reserve the right to have a surprise guest celebrity judge pick an honorable mention or distinguished taste award.
  11. Extras, when available, will be packaged up and sold at the end of the day for extra income to the food booth. So, come back and see if there are leftovers of your favorite entry to take home.
