Nearly 200 competitors are expected, baking their best pies and presenting them to the judges in the Traditional, Non-Traditional, Pizza Napoletana/STG and Gluten-Free divisions.
Watch the action in the Caputo Cup area on the Exhibit Hall floor, with trophies and up to $3,000 in prize money going to each of the division winners.

We’ll be crowning the chef with the best pasta dishes in the Northeast during this two-day competition. 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.
