This show features Nickel City Chef JJ Richert of Torches versus Challenging Chef Chris Dorsaneo of Lloyd Taco Truck. It takes place on Sunday, April 15th, 2012.
Feed Your Soul is proud to present Western New York with a fourth season of Nickel City Chef, a fun and exciting culinary competition featuring some of our region's top chefs and best farmers.
Nickel City Chef is as much about Western New York as it is about cooking and entertainment. We are privileged to live in an area with a rich history enhanced by hearty ethnic foods and one of America's greatest contributions to casual cuisine--the chicken wing.
While these culinary icons are as important to Buffalo as professional sports teams and world-class architecture, in culinary terms, they are not all that we have to offer. Nickel City Chef is designed to expose our talented chefs, providing them with an arena in which to showcase dishes that may be too daring or complicated to warrant a permanent position on a dinner menu.
Nickel City Chef takes place in one of the city's best kept secrets, a fully restored turn-of-the-century warehouse on Buffalo's West Side (home to Artisan Kitchens & Baths). Outfitted with two competition-worthy top-of-the-line kitchens, this unique setting is the ideal location for guests to enjoy light snacks and drinks while experiencing this popular cooking competition first hand.
Guest judges and local food professionals determine which chef has prepared the most technically perfect, creative, and delicious cuisine. As a member of the audience, you'll even have a say by voting for your favorite!
Your ability to immerse yourself in the competition is enhanced by the 12 flat panel televisions that hang throughout the location, providing live close-ups of both kitchen work spaces.
We hope that you will join us during Nickel City Chef, Season Four!
Children under 16 will not be admitted. IDs will be checked at the door in order to verify that anyone being served at the bar is of age.
Nickel City Chef is possible, in part, due to the generous support of our sponsors: Wegmans, Cutco, D'Avolio, GE Monogram, SubZero/Wolf, Jenn Air, Mansion on Delaware Avenue, Independent Health, and the Buffalo chapter of the Chaine des Rotisseurs.

we love the Nicklecity Chef competition and have tried to support it the last 2 years, but this is the second year that we tried to purchase tickets for one of the events - Nickel City Chef: Richert vs. Dorsaneo and found that it was SOLD OUT at 12:01pm One minute after the website opened for purchaces. Now I know you do presale and advance tickets to the participants in the competition, but if you want the public to appreciate and acknowledge this wonderful Buffalo event then you need to to either move the competition to a larger venue to accomodate more people or at least be fair in distributing the tickets. We wished to purchase 4 tickets to this event, you should not allow one individual to buy the max of 50 tickets. Not fair to others who would like to attend. Anyway, thanks for a wonderfully fun event but unfortunately we will not be attending this year. Mike F.
Mike, It is true that season tickets and the tickets we comp to sponsors can diminish the number of seats we have on sale, but in this instance I have to tell you that the show you are referring to sold out in 1s and 2s. We will, however, follow your suggestion by limiting the number of tickets any one person can buy next year, but I don't think that was the problem in this instance. This is the show that has created the most buzz and we knew it would go fast. We wish we could seat a bigger audience or do more shows, but we have to work within the limitations of that budget and location allow There aren't a lot of locations in the U.S. with 2x $100,000 pro kitchens AND room for an audience, Artisan Kitchens is a unique and special venue. Thank you for your interest. Please send your email address , phone number, and date of the show you are interested in to email@example.com. Often we are asked to help ticket holders find buyers when they can't make a show.
