Your Challenge - Experience ExpoCulinaria


Mon, Sep 5th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

"Bring it to the table," is not just an engaging command or culinary taste bud invitation, but it will also prove an entertaining challenge for the upcoming chef cook-off at the first ever Rushford, MN, ExpoCulinaria-an experience in taste. Two professional chef's talents and knowledge will be put to the test as they create an array of scrumptious appetizers, entrees and desserts. Utilizing an unknown pantry of food and a surprise ingredient for a panel of judges, in a limited amount of time, the chefs will vie for top honors and prizes. The winning plates will be auctioned off to attending participants.

ExpoCulinaria is slated for 5-8 pm on September 17th rain or shine, at the historic Hoiland Mill. Located on the banks of Rush Creek, the restored and renovated three-story mill is an authentic mingling of rustic charm and former industry presence. Hosted by the Rushford Area Chamber of Commerce, the delectable ExpoCulinaria will coincide with the highly anticipated weekend 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Root River Trail System.

The feature completion will face off two 'seasoned' Minnesota chefs. Peter Botcher is an accomplished chef with over ten years cooking experience. Well versed in a range of cooking styles from butchery to vegetarian to American barbecue, his foundation for cooking lies in traditional French cuisine, wherein he learned classic technique and dedication to the culinary craft. Climbing the ranks in Minneapolis' top fine dining restaurants, he has since gone on to a self-styled apprenticeship in order to develop a repertoire beyond the standard; dedicating himself to learning new skills and mastering new techniques while riding the wave of the progressive dining scene on a national level. Chef Botcher previously worked in two nationally recognized Michelin starred restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area where he resided. Extensive travels around the United States, northern California and France have greatly contributed to his passion for cooking and adventure. Botcher's enjoyment of travel recently brought him to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where he cooked for Hollywood elite. Currently employed at Tilia, an American bistro in Minneapolis, he keeps busy on his days off making and selling smoked sausages.

His competitor Chef Douglas Dahlgren attended the Art Institutes International Minnesota in Minneapolis, receiving an Associate's degree in the Culinary Arts. While attending school, Dahlgren worke .....
