Over 90 Texas chefs will show off their culinary expertise at the 2023 State Fair of Texas by cooking a favorite recipe in front of a live audience four times daily at no cost.
From barbeque pit-masters to award-winning executive chefs, foodie fairgoers of all ages will experience every taste Texas has to offer! In addition to demonstrating their craft by preparing a signature dish, the chefs will also give kitchen tips, answer questions, and share samples with the audience.
Fairgoers can treat their taste buds and enjoy these free demonstrations all 24 days of the State Fair of Texas.
Not only has this year’s talent been featured on national programs, such as Cake Wars and Iron Chef America, but the lineup is also more diverse than ever — 45% of the participating chefs are women and more than 30% are people of color. For all the foodies out there, the Celebrity Chef Kitchen is the perfect opportunity to connect with dynamic and diverse chefs from across the Lone Star State.
See below for the full schedule of chefs showcasing their skills at the Celebrity Chef Kitchen in the Creative Arts building.
In addition to these culinary creations, fairgoers can also pre-register and enter our amateur cooking contests, such as the Cake Contest and Youth Cooking Contest, at BigTex.com/CreativeArts.
The 2023 State Fair of Texas, themed “Explore the Midway,” opens Friday, September 29, and will run through Sunday, October 22.
