For each contestant, the high and low scores will be discarded. Chefs will be competing for a trophy, medals, and cash prizes! Heat times on August 18 are 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 pm. The chefs advancing to the finals round will compete on August 19 at noon. All applicants MUST be available to participate on BOTH days, in case they advance to the Finals.
