Meet the Chef: Rich Carter
Chef Carter recently defeated 15 of the best Triangle chefs in a friendly competition to raise $200,000 to benefit the Lucy Daniels Center in the 2017 Cooking for a Classic. As seems natural for competitions in North Carolina, chefs were paired off over multiple rounds in true “Sweet 16” NCAA Tournament style and the winner of each competition advanced to face another winner in the following round. In each round, chefs battled to create a three-course meal of small plates. In a unique twist the chefs were also responsible for a signature cocktail, wine or beer pairing to go along with each course. Guests and local celebrity judges voted for their favorite dishes to determine the winner of each round.
