LOCAL CHEF CHALLENGE EVENT PLANS TO MAKE A SPLASH AT HISTORIC WATER STREET DISTRICT FOR LAST FRIDAY CULINARY BATTLE – FRIDAY, JUNE 28
Chefs Ron Sapp and Oscar Sanchez of Oscar Catering to go Head-to-Head in Just Add Water Street Cooking Competition
Last Friday chef challenge plans to make a splash with three, giant water slides at historic Water Street in Downtown Henderson, Friday, Jun. 28. Attendees will be able to cool off from the street heat and enjoy street-side entertainment, food vendors, retail pop-ups, live music and more from 6-10 p.m. and have a chance to cheer on some of Las Vegas’s most adored, local chef talent vying to claim victory.
Just steps away from the main stage of the amphitheater of City Hall in Henderson, the chef challenge will consist of two area chefs who will be provided proteins furnished by Mikuni Harvest. They’ll then have to create two plates in less than 45 minutes. The two competitors set to go head-to-head are Hell’s Kitchen Season 19 & 20 contestant, Ron Sapp, versus Columbian born-and-bred culinary master, Oscar Sanchez, of Oscar Catering. Headlining as host for this month’s chef challenge will be “The General” and local personality Brett Raymer.
With every great cooking competition comes a top-notch lineup of judges! Rounding out the judges’ table this month is Assistant General Manager and events extraordinaire Andrea Schubert of Tivoli Village, alongside MMA Tuff n Uff fighting champions, Alex Aragon and Tyson Craig.
There is no general admission to the Last Friday, JAWS and is free to the public. The community festival begins at 6 p.m., and the live chef challenge kicks off at 7 p.m. Last Friday was founded to resurrect and celebrate the community’s emerging arts footprint. Area sponsors include The City of Henderson and a few community-driven partners such as the Las Vegas Weekly, Findlay Volkswagen of Las Vegas, and Lotus Broadcasting.
