There will be everything from duck charcuterie to duck-dominated first and second courses. Confirmed chefs include:

  • Chef Jessica Wilson;
  • Gina Kealty, Nourishing NYC;
  • Marja Sansom (aka “Dumpling Diva”), The Kitchen Club, will bring Duck and Ginger Dumplings;
  • Amateur “Cook-off King of Queens,” Adrian Ashby;
  • Returning amateur chef Michele Lamort;

Prizes will be awarded based on regional sourcing and seasonality of ingredients, creativity, execution, appearance, and taste.
