Festival Flea Market Mall is searching for the best home cooks in South Florida for a chance to compete for prizes and glory in the Festival Foodie Feud cooking contest. Festival teamed up with MasterChef Season 6 runner-up Derrick Peltz to test the culinary skills of four lucky contestants. The contest will include three rounds of cooking and one contestant will be eliminated after each round.
Peltz will act as host, mentor and judge. Additional judges include WSVN anchor Belkys Nerey and Sun Sentinel columnist Doreen Christensen. Comedian and Festival Flea Market Mall spokesperson Lisa Corrao will MC the event.

Each contestant will also receive a branded apron and cutting board to commemorate the challenge. Furthermore, the audience will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with Peltz before, during and after the competition.
