If you are a lover of the world’s best Italian food and Chefs’ Taste-off cooks competitions, you will find “amore” with dinner + wine + a great show at the Gran Finale of the IMAF Chef’s Cup.

The multiple course dinner and wine pairing (includes gratuity) takes place on Wednesday the 11th at Il Fornaio in San Francisco.


At the IMAF Chef’s Cup cook-off finale, located 1/2 block from the America’s Cup main stage on the SF Embarcadero, Italy’s Top Michelin Starred Chefs Rosanna Marziale and Stefano Cerveni will compete during a final showdown of this international competition.

This event is a version of a TasteTV Million Dollar Dinner event (MillionDollarDinner.com). After two individual cooking demonstrations, Rosanna and Stefano will present their dishes to a judging panel as the final winner is selected.

The Chef’s Cup will be MC’d TasteTV.

The IMAF Chef’s Cup international competition began in Italy with 12 Michelin-starred chefs who were paired to create two dishes that were inspired by the world of the arts. The seven-stage competition took place throughout Italy in Rome, Florence, Parma, Milan, Perugia, Venice and Viareggio this summer. Italy’s best now converge on San Francisco.
