Food Network celebrity chef Melissa d’Arabian, who is best known for her TV Series Ten Dollar Dinners, will also be on hand to help judge the annual Chef Throwdown. The throwdown showcases two chefs going head-to-head in a cooking challenge to determine whose culinary creation reigns supreme. Natural and organic foods supermarket chain Whole Foods is providing the pantry staples for the culinary cook-off and leading premium beef producer Creekstone Farms will award a generous check to the winner of the chef throwdown title which will be presented to Taste of the Nation Orlando.

This year’s silent auction invites guests to bid on luxury apparel and accessories, stays at upscale hotels, gift cards to the area’s top restaurants, rounds of golf on area courses, and tickets to coveted sporting events. Guests can also enter a grand prize drawing for an all-expense paid trip for two to Oktoberfest in Munich!

Local beneficiaries include Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
