Franciscan Oaks Culinary Challenge
The Franciscan Oaks Culinary Challenge is a competition among four local chefs. It’s also a chance for you to taste lots of great food, and afterwards, to explore this wonderful retirement community.
Sponsored jointly by Franciscan Oaks and the Denville Chamber of Commerce, the cook-off features a format similar to that of a culinary school final exam. Each contestant will receive a mystery basket from which to create a showcase entrée, which is then rated by three celebrity judges. Culinary vendor booths and free food samples complete the fun. It’s a perfect antidote to the January blahs. So come prepared to cheer on your favorite chef, then taste and tour at Franciscan Oaks.
Chefs will include:
- Flavio Ferreira, Sogo Hibachi Restaurant
Born and raised in Portugal, also serves as an international culinary consultant
- Miguel Garrido, The Rattlesnake Ranch
A native of Guatemala, with The Rattlesnake since 2003
- Amy McEntee, Denville Seafood & Codmother’s Cafe

- Joseph Pane, Franciscan Oaks
