Celebrity Chef Brings Cooking Competition to Myrtle Beach

The city of Myrtle Beach and 12 Grand Strand restaurants will be featured in Chef Swap at The Beach, a new cooking competition show that’s a partnership between Visit Myrtle Beach and The Workshop Content Studios, to premiere on the Cooking Channel starting October 1 and air six episodes through the beginning of November.

Chef Amanda Freitag will take chefs out of their resident kitchens and swap them into each other’s
restaurant to prepare a new dish for evaluation by a panel of judges. The chefs won’t know beforehand which kitchen they’ll be in or what they’ll be preparing.

“From beachside spots and fresh seafood markets to international cafes and fine dining, Myrtle Beach is a culinary destination unlike any other with over 2,000 restaurants offering tried-and-true favorites next to innovative new flavors. The culinary experiences are just like The Beach— full of flavor, welcoming and ready for any craving,” says Karen Riordan, president and CEO, Visit Myrtle Beach.
