Local chef to compete in culinary competition

Celebrity chef and Emmy Award-nominated television host Marvin Woods will be in Charleston Nov. 7 to emcee the second annual Cooking Well Invitational, a culinary competition emphasizing healthier ways to cook delicious and affordable meals.

Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s cooking team, led by Chef Eric Sayers, will compete against nine other Gold Apple hospital teams during the Nov. 7 Invitational as they demonstrate how to convert recipes into healthier versions without sacrificing great taste. Professional chefs will judge the dishes made on site.

Beaufort Memorial will come together with other hospitals across the state to celebrate the success of South Carolina’s hospital chefs, who are creating delicious, healthy dishes for hospital workers, patients and visitors every day.

This event is open to the public and will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College. In addition to the competition, the event will include cooking demos and a food truck rodeo. The registration fee for the Invitational is only $35 per person.

Working Well focuses on three areas to creating a culture of wellness: tobacco free people and places, healthy, delicious and affordable food options, and enhanced opportunities to be active during the workday.

Beaufort Memorial is a recipient of the Gold Apple award from Working Well, which recognizes hospitals that excel in offering delicious, nutritious food at affordable prices.
