The 2023 Treasure Coast MasterChef Competition, presented by Kyle G’s Restaurants is back and better than ever, showcasing some of the best chefs on the Treasure Coast.

At this preliminary competition event, competing chefs will present a “signature” appetizer for event attendees to taste.  A panel of industry-leading judges will taste and select the Top 4 Best appetizers of the night. Those Top 4 chefs will then move on to compete in the finale competition on Wednesday, March 22nd.

The Treasure Coast MasterChef competition is excited to announce its partnership with Indian River State College for this 2023 event. The college, known as one of the best culinary schools in Florida, is located on the Mueller Campus in Indian River County.
