Serving it forward

Downtown Wilmington’s Manna restaurant, with the help of some of Wilmington’s best chefs, staged its second School of Fire chef competition Oct. 15, raising nearly $1,500 for Cape Fear Community College’s culinary program.

The light-hearted charity event produced some great dishes, earning awards for both of the chef teams that participated.

In the Uptown vs. Downtown contest, uptown chefs Keith Rhodes of Catch, Kirsten Mitchell of Cameo 19 Hundred and Tommy Mills of Little Pond Caterers took the People’s Choice award. Downtown chefs James Doss of Rx, Joshua Woo of YoSake and Rebeca Alvarado Paredes of Manna took home the trophy awarded by the “official” judges, myself, Freaker USA founder Zach Crain and actor/comedian Cullen Moss.

If you missed my live Twitter coverage, no problem. Here are some pictures from the contest.
