Two Charlottesville Chefs from Fillini's Restaurant and West Main Restaurant challenged each other to a cook off.

Jaci Dunkle, Owner of Fellini's off Market Street thought up the idea while watching her favorite Reality TV Shows.

The event started out at West Main where guests were served three courses paired with wine, guests then drove over to Fillini's to taste three courses from Executive Chef Chris Humphrey.

"It's been bigger than I thought. It's gained a lot more attention than I thought it was going to ... this one has completely exceeded all of my expectations" said Humphrey.

All guests and the judges rated the courses on taste, creativity, and presentation.

Instead of 'Top Chef' or 'Iron Chef', these two chefs were fighting for the title of 'Cheften'.
