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

Individual tickets to 2018 shows go on sale January 5th at noon.

Nickel City Chef Season 5 Begins!

Kevin Telaak

Nickel City Chef, a Feed Your Soul production, is an exciting and popular cooking competition, but it is so much more than that, too. You can read more about its mission here.

Nickel City Chef kicked off its fifth season on February 24th with a battle featuring Arden Farm‘s kale as a secret ingredient. Arden Farm is an organic farm located in East Aurora and  operated by the great grandson of Elbert Hubbard, founder of the Roycroft.

Challenging Chef Michael Obarka of Ristorante Lombardo took on Nickel City Chef JJ Richert of Torches. The two are longtime friends who cut their teeth together at Westwood Country Club. Judges for the day included Janice Okun, the former restaurant critic and food editor of the Buffalo News, Nelson Starr, a Buffalo Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and Chef Mark Mistriner, CEC, founder and Division Chair of the new Niagara Falls Culinary Institute.

As always, the show took place at Artisan Kitchens & Baths and was hosted by Bert Gambini and Chef Mike Andrzejewski. Photography by Wabi Sabi Foto. Video by Brian Mihok.
