Rocket Chef is based on popular and contemporary food television challenges and will showcase local chefs from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. Their cooking ability will be tested in a time-pressured environment using “mystery” ingredients. This all takes place on a stage in front of a live audience of more than 300 people and three well respected culinary judges! Before the Rocket Chef competition, food enthusiasts will have the opportunity to sample cuisine from each chef’s restaurant during a tasting reception.

2019 Participants:

  • Chef Paul Ackerman – Huntsville Country Club
  • Chef Luke Hawke – Gemini Kitchen & Cocktails
  • Chef Brian Miller – Ruth’s Chris
  • Chef Angela Ozbolt – Good Company Café

All proceeds benefit the Food Bank of North Alabama and Merrimack Hall’s Happy Headquarters, both 501(c)(3) organizations. Since its inception in 2014, Rocket Chef has raised nearly $200K for these charitable organizations and helped spread the word about the valuable and life-changing work they each do in our community.
