VotW – The Muddy Chef Challenge 2017

For our video of the week this time, we turn to a video by NorthAmericaOverland. Back in July of this year, the Muddy Chef Challenge was held up in Manchester, Vermont. This is an annual gathering of Land Rover enthusiasts that, as the name implies, involves both cooking and off-road driving.

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 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.
