Local chefs face-off in support of Tucson’s retirement community

TUCSON (KVOA) - Whether it be in person or through a screen, there is something absolutely delicious about watching master chefs show off their culinary talent.

Luckily for people who enjoy a good bout in the kitchen, St. Luke's Home is bringing the competition to the virtual world - all to help the Tucson retirement community.

On Oct. 3 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. St. Luke's Home will broadcast a virtual culinary competition, pitting five of executive chefs from local retirement communities against one another. With 100 percent of the event proceeds benefitting the elders of St. Luke’s Home, organizers say this is one event you do not want to miss.

The competition will be judged by eight celebrity chefs, including News 4 Tucson's Lupita Murillo.

People who participate in the livestream will be given the opportunity to enter a raffle, vote for the People's Choice Award and check out recipes used by the chefs competing that afternoon.

The winner of the competition will earn the Title of Silver Chef, the award and a $2,500 purse.

This year's competition will feature David McGehee of Copper Canyon Assisted Living & Memory Care, Michael Lopez of The Forum at Tucson, Erich Border of The Hacienda at the Canyon, Selina Miramontes of St. Luke's Home and Jeremy Montoya of Via Elegante Assisted Living.
