SoNo Chef Shoot Out @ Clarke Culinary Center

Amy Kundrat

The Ultimate SoNo Chef Shoot Out will take place on Thursday, October 7th, at 6 pm at the Clarke Culinary Center. This iron-chef-style competition will pit Matt Storch, head chef of SoNo’s Match restaurant and Master Chocolatier Fritz Knipschildt, founder of Café Chocopologie against each other in front of a crowd of 40 lucky guests. 

The chefs are asked to create three different dishes (an appetizer, entrée and dessert) with just one ingredient. A panel of judges and guest ballots will decide the winner as they taste the recipes paired with wine and the restaurant’s specialty cocktails. Tickets are $125 and will benefit The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.  

“We are so thrilled to be involved in this event,” said Tom Clarke, CEO of Clarke. “...our partnership with innovative chefs, in conjunction with a fine local organization helping to eliminate hunger in our country, is something that the Clarke team is passionate about.”  

Tickets are limited. For Information & tickets visit or call 800-842-5275, ext. 206.
