On March 5, attendees of the 2018 Chef to Chef Conference at the Westin Seattle gathered during the Monday night reception to watch four talented club chefs race the clock to create dazzling dishes using a mystery basket of ingredients.
Participants included Thomas Mitchell of Kenwood Golf & Country Club, Bethesda, Md.; James Haberstroh of Glen Ridge (N.J.) Country Club; Brandon Gross of The Metropolitan Club of the City of Washington (D.C.); and Brittany Gambrell of Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, N.C.
After three exciting rounds, Gross, who assisted The Metropolitan Club’s Executive Chef Vincent Horville the following day during a presentation featuring new spins on old classics, emerged as the winner, earning a Vitamix blender in the process. Gambrell earned second place and a $200 gift certificate toward a future conference’s registration.
