On September 24th 2018 Worcester’s hottest chefs battled it out to be the winner of the 2nd Annual Chopped!Worcester.  Using ingredients we give them, the talented chefs had to create an appetizer and entrée in 40 minutes.  

4 Chefs, 2 courses, but only one chef can win!

The battle between Chris O’Harra from Maddi’s, Rachel Coit from Kummerspeck, Bill Nemeroff from BT’s Smokehouse, and Robin Clark from deadhorse hill was a close one!  Our judges  Mike Arristia of the Hangover Pub, Alina Eisenhauer: winner of Sweet Genius and the talented Derek Gibbs had the tough job of choosing the tastiest creation! We were also joined by our amazing MC’s Jim Eber, and chef Jay Powell.


In the end there can only be one winner of the coveted “Golden Cleaver” and our panel of judges chose Rachel Coit of Kummerspeck and her amazing culinary creations to receive the title of CHOPPED!Worcester 2018 winner!
