Chefs from four of Echuca-Moama's best restaurants will compete in the Great Taste of Echuca-Moama Dinner.

Echuca hospital’s emergency department is sure to emerge as the clear winner of a chef versus chef challenge next month.

Chefs from four of Echuca-Moama’s best restaurants will battle it out as part of the Blue Ribbon Foundation’s Great Taste of Echuca-Moama dinner at Dungula Function Centre on June 28.

The chefs, representing Moama Bowling Club, Rich River Golf Club, Oscar Ws and Morrisons, will each deliver a six-course degustation menu.

The Echuca branch of the Blue Ribbon Foundation raises money for the emergency department of ERH, and all proceeds of the $110 a head ticket will go towards the emergency department.

Echuca branch Blue Ribbon Foundation’s Sandi Stanton said each head chef, assisted by a sous chef and apprentices from BRIT Echuca campus, would make canopes, four main courses and petits fours.

The chefs have to design the menu themselves, but teams can only be judged on the four main courses, consisting of fish, poultry, pork and beef.

Ms Stanton said everyone who attended would get to vote on best dish.

‘‘It’s team against team, battle of the chefs,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s the event for 2014, it will be fantastic.’’

Entertainment will include performances from ‘The Wacky Chefs Trio’.

Limited tickets are available, with only 240 seats.
