Are you interested in taking part in the 3rd Annual Heart of Georgia EggFest and helping support our local Children’s Hospital by competing? Register as an individual or a multi-person cooking team, to be a part of this great event. This event is scheduled for June 3rd, 2017 and the Deadline to register is May 27th, 2017. There is a $15 registration fee that goes directly to the Children’s Miracle Network in support of our local Children’s Hospital and includes a Heart of Georgia EggFest t-shirt.

As an EggFest Chef, you can prepare anything you like to serve. We’ll have the lighting of the Eggs at 8 a.m. on Saturday and you may prepare proteins, sauces etc. ahead of time. EggChefs should be prepared to provide a minimum of 300-400 bite sized samples to our tasters.

Long Cooks: EggChef’s who want to cook briskets, pork shoulders or other long cooks that can’t be accomplished between the lighting of the Eggs and 11am, may choose to start their cooks on their Eggs at home, as long as they adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Cooking items must be finished on a Big Green Egg at the Heart of Georgia EggFest.
  • EggChef’s must follow Food Safe guidelines and ensure that the protein temperature has not been between 41-135 degrees for more than four hours. The internal temperature must reach between 145 degrees whole or 155 degrees if injected.
  • Free Drinking Water for all Cooking teams, courtesy of Ace of Gray.

Remember, you are providing bite sized samples – you are not expected to provide a meal. More is fine and you are encouraged to show off your skills!
