The Galley Wars competition pits culinary specialists against each other in a contest to prepare the best food using only surprise ingredients in a rustic kitchen environment. Student chefs and their brigades come from invited culinary programs.   Held in conjunction with a Rype & Readi farm feast, the competition welcomes visiting teams this fall from the Culinary Arts Program of Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Virginia College Culinary Arts in Jacksonville and our local team from First Coast Technical College Commercial Foods & Culinary Arts program in St Johns county.  

An exciting and challenging competition, chefs receive awards, acclaim and token prizes. The fortunate who attend the competition enjoy an outstanding farm-to-fork meal prepared by some of the most talented and resourceful culinary specialists in Florida and a festive evening with great local food, live music, complimentary beer & wine and pig roast to compliment the competitor’s creations.
