2019 winners:

Culinary Competition - 

Fundraising -


Our 2019 "Celebrity Sous Chefs”  are competitively-spirited, eager, and enthusiastic movers and shakers of the community who share Habitat’s values and are poised to take over the Habitat competitive food scene. They each have been taught a skill by a professional chef, and have participated in a competition to learn who has mastered this newly acquired skill the best. They had no idea what it was their chef would be asking them to accomplish on the day they arrived to master their task. They came willing to learn--and to beat their opponents. The culinary competition professional chef judges observed the Sous Chefs on the day of the challenge, and decided the best execution of the skill.


The culinary competition judges for 2019 were Chefs Daniel Mears of Cultured Corners, and Shaina Bounds of The Ugly Pie.

In addition to this friendly culinary competition, all Sous Chefs have been asked to raise money in support of the event and Habitat’s mission to eliminate substandard housing.  Each winner of this two-part competition will be named on the night of the gala. Last year, our Celebrities raised $12,262  for construction on future Habitat Homes.


Which of these amazing competitors will be crowned the winners of the 2019 Chefs for Habitat Celebrity Sous Chef Challenge? Click each image below to watch the Celebrity Chefs' skill challenge and vote. All money raised will support Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County. The winners will be announced at Chefs for Habitat on February 23.
