This week will mark the final week before the semi-finals kick off for this year’s annual Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament.

The exciting Iron Chef-style single-elimination tournament runs all summer long at the Inn at the Colonnade and showcases the creativity and talent of local chefs who compete for the final prize of being named this year’s Master Chef.

Each week is themed and this coming week will feature “Battle Fromage” with Grille 620 competing against Smokin’ Hot Bar and Grille on Monday and KitchenCray battling The White Oak Tavern on Tuesday.

Semi-Final matches will be held August 1 and 2, culminating in the Final Championship match on Sunday, August 14th. A full schedule as well as chef bios are available at http://www.masondixonmasterchef.com/schedule-results/bracket.php. All competitions will be held at the Inn at the Colonnade Baltimore.
