Thank You to Everyone that Supported Top Chef 2019!

Top Chef is an interactive, multi-course cooking competition between some of the best chefs in the Hill City to determine who will be crowned Lynchburg’s Top Chef! The 2019 competing chefs were from Jimmy’s on the James, Centra Culinary Creations, Culinart Group, Randolph College, and the University of Lynchburg! Desserts were provided by the CVCC Culinary Arts Program.

Guests enjoyed delicious food, an open bar, a fantastic silent auction, and entertainment by Jubilee’s children. Congratulations to Chef Bob Rygielski with Jimmy’s on the James for winning Best Appetizer with his Lobster Bisque! Congratulations to Chef Angelo Harris with the University of Lynchburg for winning Best Entree with his Slow Braised Grass Fed Beef Short Ribs, Your Grandma’s Macaroni & Cheese, and Roasted Garden Green Beans!

The date for Top Chef 2020 will be announced soon. We hope to see you there!
