LFF Chef Competition


Local Chefs can try their hand at creating a one of a kind potato dish unique to their style using 50lbs of Igl Farm organic potatoes (provided by Farmshed). Chef dishes will be entered into a friendly competition to see whose comes out on top of the local food challenge! Attendees will vote for their favorite dish and judges will score the dishes based on specific criteria (we are currently working on updating the rules to include a new banded point system- more information to follow).

2 awards will be presented:

  • People’s Choice 
  • Judges’ Favorite 

Involvement from local restaurants and businesses not only supports Farmshed’s efforts to generate awareness of our regional abundance and remind community members of the value in supporting local farms, restaurants, and businesses, but it’s also an opportunity to connect with over 2,000 local people to promote their establishment. Restaurant donors will be featured in the event program, on our website, and promoted on Facebook.

Congratulations to PJ’s-SentryWorld for winning Judges Choice and Wisconsin River Meats for being awarded People Choice!

Thank you and congratulations to all the chef participants!
