ASHVILLE, N.C. – Restaurant chefs from around the United States will compete head-to-head at Cargill’s Sterling Silver Summit which is a showcase of the company’s premium meats.

The chefs are brand ambassadors through Cargill’s Sterling Silver Signature Chef program. The competitors will cook in pairs and will be challenged to create an innovative dish using two cuts of Sterling Silver premium beef of their choice. Audience members will judge the dishes and select the winning team. The competition will be held in Asheville, North Carolina, at the Omni Grove Park Inn.

“Our insights help us understand what consumers are looking for, but our culinary team and network bring that knowledge to life,” said Chef Stephen Giunta, director of culinary services for Cargill Protein.  “The ideas they literally, and figuratively, bring to the table are trend-defining concepts our foodservice customers could apply in their restaurants.”
