Cleveland foodies: listen up. Eddie Tancredi, executive chef at Adega, is competing in the 2016 WorldChefs Global Chefs Challenge in Greece. Picture the culinary version of the Olympics, with Cleveland’s own Tancredi as the only chef representing the red, white, and blue.



If you haven't been to Adega, the feature restaurant at The 9, it’s definitely a once-a-year, anniversary-type place. Adega serves fresh modern Mediterranean food that is a bit on the costly side, with entrees ranging from $25 to $45. Celebrity residents from The 9 have been known to dine at Adega, so it comes at no surprise that the head chef is one of the best in the business. 

Adega recruited Tancredi back in 2014. After graduating from Pennsylvania Culinary Institute, Tancredi worked nationally at the Greenbrier, at Rosedale's in Columbus, and at Table 45, where he was the chef du cuisine. In 2013, he was selected as Chef of the Year by the American Culinary Foundation. 

Trancredi will be competing for the Global Chef Title in Greece in September 2016. We won't be able to watch it live, so we just might have to settle for splurging on a meal at Adega in order to cheer on Cleveland's own world-class chef.
