Rocket Chef

March 25, 2024

Rocket Chef showcases local chefs from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.

Based on popular and contemporary food television challenges, our chef’s cooking abilities will be tested in a time-pressured environment using “mystery” ingredients, and oh by the way … all of this takes place on a stage in front of a live audience of nearly 300 people and four well respected culinary judges! 

Before the Rocket Chef competition, food enthusiasts enjoyed the opportunity to sample cuisine from each chef’s restaurant during our tasting reception. 

All proceeds from the event will benefit Merrimack Hall Performing Arts Center.

Looking to get your brand attached to the premier live food event in the rocket City?

With over 300 live attendees to the event, and a marketing reach of 5,000+ individuals in 2023, Rocket Chef is a great way to grow your brand while supporting the programs of Merrimack Hall.

All proceeds from the event benefits give people will special needs the chance to express themselves creatively!
