Cleavers and Cocktails pits the chef and the bartender from two restaurants against each other to create both a cocktail and two plates that must pair. A food and bar black box will be provided at the beginning of geat #1 with the culinary item and the bar item included in the final dish and cocktail. A new black box item (a surprise) will be provided at the beginning of heat #2 and that must also be used in the final cocktail and plate.
At the end of each heat, the competitor’s efforts will be evaluated by our judges and small samples of the dish and cocktail will be distributed to all guests. Guests will help determine the winner of the evening.
