Join Focus On Renewal, Ohio Valley Hospital and the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant program for the culinary competition of 2018! 

We’re inviting you to join us on Monday March 12, 2018 to watch a group of Pittsburgh teens and local chefs as they battle it out chef-style on the stage at the Ryan Arts Center to determine who has what it takes to win the title of “Steel Chef”.

How does Steel Chef work?

Groups of 3-4 teens will be paired with two chefs for competition teams. Training will take place over the course of January-March. Teens will work with chefs to develop the necessary basic prep and sous chef skills in order to compete before a live studio audience at the Steel Chef Challenge on Monday, March 12th, 2018.

Winners of the coveted “Steel Chef” title will be rated and determined by local celebrity judges at the event to be held at the Ryan Arts Center theatre in McKees Rocks.
