The competition heats up as Chef, Bart Messing of Woodfield Country Club “stirs the pot” on his competitors!


Palm Beach County Foundation announces 2nd annual
Country Club Chef Showdown

A Battle of the Best Country Club Chefs in Boca!

Get ready for a showdown! The ballroom is sure to heat up when the 2nd annual battle of the country club chefs is hosted by last year’s winner – Boca West Country Club – on Thursday, January 31, 2013! The chefs will go knife-to-knife in this Iron Chef-style competition. Each chef will create a signature dish using the same main ingredient. A panel of celebrity judges will determine the winner,
who will have the opportunity to host next year’s event. Guests can sample each of the chef’s creations, sip savory cocktails, sway to cool jazz and bid on wonderful silent auction prizes throughout the evening!

The competing chefs are: Four-time James Beard Award Nominee, Zach Bell of Addison Reserve Country Club; Joe Longo of Broken Sound Country Club; Stephen Viggiano of St. Andrews Country Club; and Bart Messing of Woodfield Country Club. The esteemed panel of experts judging their creations are: renowned chef and author, Norman Van Aken, Director of Restaurants, Miami Culinary Institute; Stephanie Miskew, The Glamorous Gourmet; Virginia Philip, Master Sommelier, The Breakers Palm Beach and owner of Virginia Philip Wine Shop & Academy; and Marie Speed, Group Editor, JES Publishing, Boca Raton Magazine.

“Don’t miss the excitement as these great chefs compete for top honors and bragging rights,” said Greg Leach, president of Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation. “Last year’s event was a smash hit! Event proceeds benefit the much-needed patient care programs of Hospice of Palm Beach County. I commend each one of our attendees, chefs, judges, sponsors, chairs, committee members, volunteers and our host, Boca West Country Club. As we all come together for an evening of food inspiration, we are helping our neighbors in their time of greatest need.”

This year, Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation will expand to two events – a North County edition in Jupiter and a South County edition in Boca Raton! Sponsors making the South Country Club Chef Showdown possible are: The Barbara Epstein Foundation; 1st United Bank; Levin Home Care; Boca Raton magazine; Comcast; WPEC – CBS12; and Underwriters Whole Foods Market and Sysco. We owe special thanks to our outstanding event committee, including: Event Chair Phil Kupperman, Chairman, Boca West Country Club; Honorary Chair Robert Friedman; and Host Committee Vicki Accardi, Debbie Archer, Susan Daub, Sue Epstein, Roberta Levine, Antoinette Matos and Sara Scaldani.

Tickets begin at $100. A special VIP ticket includes priority seating, amuse-bouche (tiny, delightful bites!) and tableside wine service. For more information, please call Mary Coleman at 561.265.6042 or visit .
