Competitors must come up with on-the-spot creations under stress, judges scrutiny, and time limit. The best part...it's ALL for local charities!

Talented chefs from all over New Mexico join Chef Mike to teach this valuable life skill, and provide a creative outlet for children to explore new ideas.
Chef Mike is pleased to be the Chef Mentor for the Atrisco Heritage Academy High School Culinary Team. In 2019 Chef Danielle Young lead the team to be awarded second-place overall in state competition.

With help from students of the Atrisco Heritage and their Instructing Chef Danielle Young, Chef Mike brought home the Judge's Choice Win against stiff competition and award-winning chefs by presenting a local harvest plate featuring spice-rubbed tenderloin, Corrales pumpkin butter, Santa Fe greens, and a Chimayo corn hash.
Chef Mike lead a team of New Mexico's best chefs to compete in Colorado at the Pairsine Wine Festival.
