Six local military teams will battle it out during the fifth annual Best of the Mess, scheduled for Jan. 23.

The culinary challenge will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Founders Inn and Spa, 5641 Indian River Road, in Virginia Beach. Teams from dock landing ships Oak Hill and Tortuga, Oceana Naval Air Station's Hornet's Nest, destroyer Arleigh Burke and carriers George H.W. Bush and Harry S. Truman will face off.

Each group will prepare a tasting menu with five required ingredients: Granny Smith apples, pimento cheese, pork belly, sage and sweet potatoes. Teams will be evaluated by a panel of judges selected by the Culinary Institute of Virginia.

Proceeds benefit the Chief Petty Officer Scholarship Fund. Tickets are $45 and must be purchased in advance at
