The Muddy Chef Challenge was established in 2008 in Stowe, Vermont. A handful of Land Rover aficionados got together with the crazy idea that off-roading could be combined with a vehicle-based gourmet cooking challenge and the Muddy Chef Challenge was born. Since then, the Muddy Chef has grown to become the largest Land Rover event of its type in the world. We are often described as “Top Gear meets Top Chef” and that’s a perfect description. Over the course of three days, competitors will setup African Safari style campsites, experience challenging off-road and overland driving, take part in sporting field events (Falconry, Fly Fishing, Sporting Clay shooting, etc.) dress up for exclusive cocktail parties, visit local purveyors of gourmet food and spirits, and compete in two world-class vehicle based cooking challenges!
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) worked with lifelong Land Rover fan and customer Jamie Oliver to bring his vision to life. The result is truly unique – it’s the only Discovery in the world that has a toaster in the center console and a rotisserie driven by the power take off. Other ingenious features include a slow-cooker that sits beside the engine, a pasta maker, a gas hob and a deployable dining table and worktop. There are even a herb garden and spice rack in the rear windows.
