LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a tasty competition to benefit local food-related charities.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser learns about the 12th Annual Kentuckiana Big Green EGGFest.

The smoking hot fundraiser happens on Friday, August 6th and Saturday, August 7th.

On Friday, just outside Brownsboro Hardware & Paint, 4858 Brownsboro Road, Louisville, local chefs go head-to-head in a chopped style competition.

The games begin when the culinary artists receive secret ingredients.

Then, they have to impress the judges with Keith Kaiser being one of the official tasters.

Proceeds will go to local food-related charities.

Nearly $200,000 has been donated to local food-related charities.

You can help again this year.
