Nickel City Chef, Season 10, 2018

Kevin Telaak

In 2018, Nickel City Chef will offer Western New York a 10th season
of its hit culinary competition series!

Described by many as Buffalo’s own version of Iron Chef, this live cooking challenge pits professional chefs from local restaurants against one another in the stunning kitchens located at Artisan Kitchens & Baths. Each chef must use a locally sourced secret ingredient to create unforgettable concoctions in under an hour. Nickel City Chef has always sought to combine the entertainment value of food television with a distinct passion for all things local, with the end result being an experience as exciting as it is educational.

There’s a fine line between food lovers and food nerds. Food lovers are concerned with the end result, while food nerds obsess over every step of how a dish is made, from the sourcing of ingredients to its preparation and plating. If there was any doubt that Buffalo has always been home to an intense and appreciative group of food nerds, the success of the Nickel City Chef series provides incontrovertible proof.

Several exciting announcements and surprises are in store for 2018 audiences; we hope you will join us!

Dates for the 2018 season of Nickel City Chef are as follows:

Sunday, February 18th

Sunday, March 11th

Sunday, March 25th

Sunday, April 8th
Individual tickets to 2018 shows go on sale January 5th at noon.

On Friday, December 1st,
a very limited number of season tickets will go on sale.*

Additional information about the event, its history, and its participants can be found at nickelcitychef.com

Nickel City Chef – SEASON 8 Is Announced

Kevin Telaak

2016 will mark the eighth season of Nickel City Chef, the Buffalo/Niagara region’s premiere cooking competition.

Described by many as Buffalo’s own version of Iron Chef, Nickel City Chef is as much about Western New York as it is about cooking and entertainment. We are privileged to live in an area with a rich history enhanced by hearty ethnic foods, a wildly varied agricultural bounty, and one of America’s greatest contributions to casual cuisine—the chicken wing.

Modern Take on a Classic Style

Kevin Telaak

Story: The kitchen is the core of this home, belonging to a family who loves to cook. The house is adorned with characteristics of the early 1940’s including a flagstone foyer, original woodwork and trim as well as leaded windows. Finding the right mix of classic and current was important, especially in maintaining an open concept plan. The end result was kitchen that seamlessly joined a family room ultimately creating a space for everyday family life.

Style: a modern take on a classic style. The space is home to warm tones, clean, linear elements and professional appliances.

Materials: The kitchen features painted white Kemper cabinets, high end appliances including Miele and Sub Zero, Cambria quartz countertops and Daltile product backsplash.

Challenges: This project had its own set of unique challenges. There were vast differences in ceiling heights, large HVAC ducts and pipes to be hidden and entrances to the garage to be observed and maintained. The large central column housing the refrigerator, bookshelves and pantries is actually constructed to hide a chase and other various pipes. It was the unique mix of aesthetics and practical install that made the kitchen such a great space.

Nickel City Chef, Season Seven, Episode 3

Kevin Telaak

Described by many as Buffalo’s own version of Iron Chef, Nickel City Chef is as much about Western New York as it is about cooking and entertainment. We are privileged to live in an area with a rich history enhanced by hearty ethnic foods and one of America’s greatest contributions to casual cuisine—the chicken wing.

While these edible icons are as important to Buffalo as professional sports teams and world-class architecture, in culinary terms, they are not all that we have to offer. Nickel City Chef is designed to expose our area’s talented chefs, providing them with an arena in which to showcase dishes that may be too daring or complicated to warrant a permanent position on a restaurant’s dinner menu.

This year, Feed Your Soul Productions has teamed up with Buffalo’s Highwatermark Films to again produce shortvideo segments detailing the day’s competition.Battle Milk, featuring whole white milk and whole chocolate milk from Hoover Dairy in Sanborn, NY, took place on March 22, 2015. Nickel City Chef Adam Goetz of Craving Restaurant and his sous chef, Patrick Chmura, took on Challenger Bryan Mecozzi of Black Iron Bystro, and his sous chef Steven Ceccarelli.

Judges included Chuck Cerankosky, co-owner of Rochester’s Good Luck and Cure restaurants, chef Mark Mistriner of Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, and Jill Gedra Forster, owner of Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile.

The show was held at Artisan Kitchens & Baths in Buffalo, NY and hosted by Bert Gambini, chef Mike Andrzjewski (Seabar, Tappo, Cantina Loco, and Bourbon & Butter), and special guest, chef James Roberts, CEC of Toutant.

Many thanks to our sponsors, Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, Lexington Co-operative Market, Artisan Kitchens & Baths, Mansion on Delaware Avenue, H2Gro, Leonard Oakes Winery, Buffalo chapter of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, and Independent Health’s Healthy Options.

Nickel City Chef is a Feed Your Soul Production. Feed Your Soul is owned and operated by Christa Glennie Seychew.
