Nickel City Chef Competition - Buffalo, NY

Sort of like Buffalo's own version of Iron Chef, the Nickel City Chef Competition pits western New York's most talented chefs against each other in creative and entertaining cooking duels. For this dinner the Nickel City Chef team will prove that their talent for collaboration is as strong as their prodigious culinary skills.
