Local Guest Chef Competition

An all-new 7 Part Series Competition engaging the Greater Akron local guest chef participants, Chef Glenn Gillespie, and the diners of Edgar’s Restaurant in exciting evenings of food and entertainment with the goal of promoting local chef talent and the use of local ingredients.


The “7 Part Guest Chef” Competition Dining Series is unlike any other dinner experience in the country!
