Wilson, Arkansas to Host Chef Competition for Up and Coming Professionals

Samuel X. Cicci,

Sharpen the cutlery and dust off an old chef’s hat — a Delta cooking contest is about to unfold just 45 minutes up the road from the Bluff City.

The City of Wilson, Arkansas (a small town big enough to experience a 21st century wine-driven renaissance) is hosting its Wilson Culinary Chef Competition for young professionals. Set to take place from April 20-22, the contest — which organizers hope will become an annual event — will pit six promising cooks against each other for the chance to win a cash prize, and a possible chance to join Wilson’s hospitality and culinary program.
