Truffle Fight

Houston’s Top Chefs Battle for Supremacy — and Kilograms of Pricey Delicacies

BY // 12.07.15

After a successful inaugural event earlier this year, the annual truffle chef competition is back for its sophomore debut. Hosted by Diane Roederer‘s DR|Delicacy  an importer of fresh truffles from Spain and Italy — this year’s competition features 20 chefs from some of Houston’s top restaurants, including Arcodoro, BCN Taste and Traditions, Corner Table, Eculent, Kata Robata, La Table, Le Mistral, RDG + Bar Annie, Ristorante Cavour at Hotel Gradunca, Triniti, Urban Eats, Weights + Measures. Chefs must use DR|Delicacy’s truffles to create dishes for a panel of judges. PaperCity‘s very own Features Editor, James Brock, is a member of this year’s esteemed judges’ panel.

What exactly does the top dish at this year’s competition earn? The winning chef will receive 1 kilogram of fresh black truffles, while the first runner-up takes home 500 grams of the delicacy and the second runner-up gets 250 grams. The winning contestants will also receive a trophy marking their creations.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Les Dames d’Escoffier Scholarship Program.
