Locals who think they know their way around the kitchen are encouraged to enter the Crave Best Home Chef Competition by the Aug. 10 deadline. The event seeks to honor the best made-from-scratch chef through a recipe and cooking challenge. The top three recipes will be chosen and a one-hour challenge will take place at Sullivan University Culinary School where a panel of the area’s top chefs will choose the best home chef. The winner will be cooking on the Crave Lexington main stage and have their wining recipe featured at the festival.
