The gloves will come off when Hunter Valley Chefs & Co, a not-for-profit organisation, will host the 3rd annual ‘Food Fight’.
The much anticipated event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, and aims to showcase the region’s very best local talent and mouth-watering fresh produce, pitted against some of Sydney’s kitchen heavyweights.
In the Sydney corner will be Matt Kemp formerly of Balzac, who will lead the ‘food fighters’, along with team mates, Warren Turnbull from Assiette, Colin Fassnidge from Four in Hand, and leading Sydney culinary personality Justin North who will complete the group.
In the Hunter corner will be Captain Jamie Ryan from ‘Caves’ Beachside Hotel and his team Tim Montgomery from Bacchus, Emerson Rodriguez from Emerson’s Pokolbin, and Troy Rhoades-Brown from Muse, who will create an incredible sensory experience that shouldn’t be missed.
Check out these delicious recipes from Troy Rhoades-Brown and Emerson Rodriguez.

Funds raised through the event will be directed towards the Brett Graham Scholarship, where one promising apprentice chef will have the opportunity to be flown to London to work alongside highly acclaimed Brett Graham at his renowned Notting Hill Restaurant, The Ledbury.
