The watch party will feature light hors d’oeuvres created by HCA students.

Not only will attendees be able to watch the action from the kitchen via live stream, the actual judging for each round will be held in the Conference Center. Janel Wiederholt will be the guest judge with Chef CJ Adkins, Corporate Chef and Center of the Plate Specialist for Evco Wholesale Foods, and Chef Gus Bays, Chef/Owner of Radius Brewing Co., as celebrity judges.
