CIDDL Cizzles is a gamified professional development evening with 3-6 CIDDL innovators. Chefs are chosen based on CIDDL Cizzles Innovator ratings of their proposals. At each meeting, the chef highlights an innovative technology and “Cizzles” a related meal. 

 The chef will have 4 minutes to discuss the technology and 4 minutes to discuss or demonstrate cooking the dish. The top three “CIDDL Cizzles” chefs will compete in Orlando, FL at the end of the season (November) with the top chef securing bragging rights for the next year.
