I was thrilled when long time vegan and superstar event coordinator Jessica Mahady approached me to be a judge for challenge #1 of her vegan cooking competition: Veggie Conquest. Challenge #1 takes place Aug. 22, 2009 in Chelsea, NYC. Tickets for both chefs and tasters, are available now. Whether you are a vegan chef, foodie or just love the thrill of competition, this event promises to be loads of fun! It’s like Iron Chef for vegans-since a ‘secret ingredient’ will be revealed a week before the event! Too much fun.
Judges Panel. My fellow judges include the brilliant food stylist, Brian Preston-Campbell and self-declared “hotshot and jack-of-all-trades” Joshua Kutcher. Veggie Conquest is a must-be-there event for all NYC area foodies. I hope to see you guys there. Click ahead for more event details and links…
Veggie Conquest Event Details:
Veggie Conquest is a monthly vegan cooking competition. Chefs prepare (at their home) a dish based on a secret ingredient for each event.
Judges and tasters at the event choose the top dish, prizes are awarded and everyone chows down and has a great time!
You can come to the events as a chef or a taster. You choose your role when you buy your ticket.
No matter which role you choose, you’ll get an e-mail from Veggie Conquest a week before the event, revealing the secret ingredient and course to be made (appetizer, entree, or dessert). It will also be posted on our blog and Twitter.
$5-$10 for chefs and tasters
Follow @VeggieConquest on twitter and be the first to know the secret ingredient!!
