On event day, the participating chefs will create custom paired dishes, served in appetizer portions and staff will pour wine samples alongside thechef's food table.

A panel of notable food and wine critics/experts will taste each culinary creation with its assigned wine. They select the "Best Chef" and "Most Creative" Chef winners.
