November 9th, 2020, at 6:30 PM join us on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube live for our online first-ever CoMo Chopped benefiting Heart of Missouri United Way presented by MU Health Care.

We are bringing together six Columbia restaurants and six celebrity chefs to compete to win CoMo Chopped! Each chef team will create a unique dish to help them win the Judges’ Choice, the most dishes sold in their restaurants, or the most money raised for United Way.

 Unlike the TV show, our panel of judges will not be “chopping” anyone from the competition. You will get to watch fun videos of each chef team create their unique recipe and receive the judges’ feedback on their dish. Best of all, with CoMo Chopped, you get to help choose the winner. The goal is to promote and celebrate what makes each of these local restaurants special!

3 Ways to Win

Judges’ Choice – A panel of 3 prestigious local chefs will decide which chef team’s dish has the best flavor, creativity, and presentation overall.
Community Vote – Each restaurant will sell their Chopped Dish as a menu item. The chef team with the highest number of Chopped Dishes sold between Nov. 9th and Nov. 18th wins.
Most Dollars Raised – Go to your favorite restaurant’s page to vote by donating to their United Way Chopped Facebook Campaign. The chef team with the most money raised at the end of the judging period on November 18th wins.
