Chef Demo Applications
Be a Featured Chef
The World Food & Music Festival presented by Veridian Credit Union is looking for local, regional and national chefs to present 30-minute demonstrations in the Discovery Pavilion during The Festival. Featured chefs are responsible for describing their recipe and cooking techniques to the visitors, as well as providing food supplies to complete the recipe(s). Basic cooking supplies, electricity, burners, some spices and a gift card to purchase ingredients are provided.
In return for your participation, The Festival will promote your appearance (with name and business included) in the printed program and website. Featured chefs can distribute printed materials (business cards, pamphlets, etc.) during the demonstration.
