On Day 1, each of the 20 competitors will prepare their top recipe for a panel of judges, who will give them marks based on technique, presentation, and of course, taste. On Day 2, the same chefs will be asked to prepare a pasta dish from a table of common ingredients, including one primary ingredient that must be used in all entries.

The two-day combined score will determine the winner of first-place cash and a trophy, which will be presented Wednesday afternoon in the Pasta Competition Area of the Exhibit Hall.
