LUXE Battle of the Chefs

At Gelotte Hommas Architecture, creating amazing custom homes may be our passion, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and give back to the community. In September our own Scott Hommas participated in LUXE Magazine’s Battle of the Chefs. The event took place at the beautiful Dellile Wine Cellars in Woodenville with a huge crowd in attendance.


World class designers put their skills to the test and the results were magnificent. It was great to see old friends and make new ones while enjoying a little friendly competition.




Time was limited and the pressure was on. Only one hour to create a dish that would wow the judges while including a secret ingredient. We didn’t win the battle, but our team was awarded “Best Use of Secret Ingredient in Appetizer and Side Dish” as a testament to our creativity.

In the end it was a great day. We enjoyed catching up with those we have worked with previously and meeting more great designers to collaborate with in the future. As for a culinary career: we’ll stick with architecture. But we did relish our opportunity to venture into the culinary arts with other world class designers
