Harmons is challenging customers to compete in a cooking competition called Sliced to take place at a store in Salt Lake City in April and May.
Preliminary rounds will take place April 30-May 2 with each day dedicated to one dish: appetizers, entrees and desserts. Five cooks will compete each day, for a total of 15 contestants.
Taking a cue from popular cooking competition shows, Harmons will give each contestant a mystery box of ingredients. The cooks will then have two and a half hours to put together a dish with what’s in the box and staples from the kitchen.
The winners from each preliminary round will then compete at the Sliced Dinner Finale on May 10. Finalists will prepare their winning dishes for 65 guests with help from a Harmons executive chef.
At the finale, dishes will be rated by a group of judges and by the dinner guests. The cook with the highest score from the judges will be named the Harmons Sliced Champion, and the cook with the most points from the guests will win the title of People’s Choice Sliced Champion.
The two champions will win $500 in cash and an appearance on a local television station. The three winners from the preliminary rounds will receive a $250 Harmons gift card. All contestants will get a Harmons gift basket.
Customers can enter by filling out an online form with why they should be a participant and their best recipe for the category in which they’d like to compete. Contestants must be 18 years or older and cannot be professional cooks or chefs.
Tickets to the Sliced Dinner Finale cost $65.
