Southwest Signature Dish Showdown

Finalists in the Southwest Signature Dish Showdown prepared hot food entrees on the show floor as expert judges evaluated skills and an audience of attendees learned the latest techniques.

A panel of judges evaluated each entry using criteria from the American Culinary Federation.
