It's the most wonderful time of the year: The Vitamix Challenge at 7th Annual International Chefs Congress. It's a time when a single brilliant dish can gain you more than critical acclaim and admiring Yelp reviews. With ingenuity and the power of the Vitamix blender, you can win BIG.

Six competitors will have the chance to blend their way to victory. And this year's judges include authors Matt and Ted Lee and competition wunderkinds Richard Blais and Paul Qui.

It's a one-of-a-kind blend-off, where chefs create dishes that showcase the Vitamix blender in unusual and innovative ways.
