Sedona AZ (September 14, 2016) – Ten local amateur chefs opened their baskets and competed on Sunday, August 28th at Schoolhouse Restaurant in the Village of Oak Creek to win their place at the upcoming Canned Sedona Charity Event. Tlaquepaque in Sedona will be host to the 3rd Annual Canned Sedona on October 2, 2016 at 2pm.

After delectable deliberation, Chef/Judges Chris Dobrowlski, Greg Young and Brianna Lawton selected the final 3 chefs to compete against defending Canned Sedona champion, Karl Samter. The winning chefs and the charities they will represent are Val Aldrich, cooking for Red Rose Inspiration for Animals; Winnie Meunch, cooking for The Sedona Chamber Ballet, and Al Vander Peut, cooking for Angie’s House. Defending champion, Karl Samter, will be cooking for Sedona Verde Valley Pride.
