Enjoy SLO to host inaugural Best Chef competition
–Enjoy SLO will be teaming up with Inspired Expos to host their first chef competition. It’s going to be a showdown at the Paso Robles Event Center on Sunday, Feb. 23 from noon to 4 p.m. Come see four of SLO County’s most renowned chefs battle it out in the kitchen as they compete for the title of “Best Chef” and a $1000 prize.
