The final heat in the second annual “King of the Mountain Chefs Challenge” featured the same finalists as last year’s event—but with a different outcome. This year’s grand prize winner was Chef Johannes Klapdohr, executive chef at Old Edwards Inn & Spa.
The three-heat event was held before a live audience last Saturday afternoon and evening at Cyprus Restaurant and was modeled after the Food Network’s television show, “Iron Chef.”
The two preliminary heats took place in the afternoon. They differed from the Food Network’s show where the chefs have 45 minutes to think about and plan their creations prior to the event.
