Local chefs making an impact on Nashville’s culinary scene are going head-to-head at Music City Chef Throwdown to benefit Martha O’Bryan Center. NextUP - Martha O’Bryan Center Ambassadors is challenging Nashville chefs to showcase how an amazing meal can be made with the simplest of ingredients. Local food experts will choose a champion and guests will choose their favorite.
Formerly known as Foodbank Throwdown and unique from other food events, chefs receive a list of low-cost, widely available ingredients to create their dish, and cook against the clock to present their meals to the judges - LIVE! Our esteemed judges will choose the 2019 Throwdown Champion while our guests choose their favorite as the People’s Choice Award, and the lowest cost meal will be awarded the Spirit Award. Guests will enjoy a generous sample from every chef team, no crowds or waiting in line, and “front row” access to the action.
