Chefs Go Head To Head in Cookoff Challenge 

People packed Eastern Maine Community College’s Johnston Gym Friday evening…but not for a basketball game.The school held it’s first ever Maine Chef Challenge Friday.The event was put on to raise money for the school’s new hospitality program.There were three teams, all lead by local chef’s who also happen to be EMCC graduates.It was a three course competition, and the teams could make whatever they wanted…but there was a catch.A surprise ingredient was introduced just minutes before the competition, which the chef’s had to incorporate into one of their dishes.That surprise ingredient was Moxie.
