On Thursday, May 23, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region hosted its annual Chef’s Challenge, which this year raised a record-breaking $60,000. More than 200 guests spent the evening at Excelsior Springs Event Center sampling creations from the best local chefs, mixologists and brewers while gearing up for the fundraiser’s main attraction: the Chef’s Challenge, an Iron-Chef style battle.

This year’s Chef’s Challenge pitted the 2018 People’s Choice winner Harvey’s Restaurant and Bar, represented by head chef Adam Humphrey, against four-time champion Chef Thomas Gulbrandsen of Excelsior Springs. After a close fight, Harvey’s Restaurant and Bar won out in the end and will compete with chefs from The Adelphi Hotel for the 2020 champion title. Harvey’s also won the title of People’s Choice Beverage. Other winners from the evening included The Adelphi Hotel for People’s Choice Culinary and Nothing Bundt Cakes for People’s Choice Dessert.
