The chefs at Snackbar B-Q and The Willistead are going wild.

At the beginning of the summer Snackbar-­B-­Q & The Willistead launched Chef vs. Chef, pitting their chefs against each other the first Friday of every month. Unfortunately, like all good things, there must be an end, and they’ve decided to hold the final throwdown.

Yum yum, gimme some!
Yum yum, gimme some!


For the final time in 2015, four of their chefs will square off to conclude Windsor’s first and premier cuisine challenge, judged by Windsorites at large – but there’s a twist.

The showdown will take place November 19-22, 2015 at The Willistead and November 26-29 at Snackbar-B-Q and the theme is wild game.

That’s right, we said wild game.

The wild game inspired menus will feature wild boar, venison, kangaroo, camel, duck, goat, rabbit, and water buffalo. A la carte options are $8 each. a four course price-fixed menu is $30 and an eight course full tasting menu is $50.

“Chef vs. Chef & Chefs Gone Wild allows us to showcase the depth and breadth of the talented individuals which make up our teams,” said Mark Boscariol, one of the owners of Snackbar-B-Q & The Willistead. “Chefs Gone Wild is the logical conclusion – one final event to decide who should hold the 2015 title.”

Chef vs. Chef winners were determined by Windsorites using the hashtag #chefvschef. This time patrons at the Walkerville Brewery will be able to vote directly.

In addition to notoriety and public recognition, the winning chef gets to choose a charity to receive a $100 donation.

“Our restaurants have so much to offer and this is a great way to show off our chefs while having fun and making a difference,” said Jim Renaud, co-owner of Snackbar-B-Q and The Willistead.”
