JC Food Co-Op 2nd Annual CHEF SHOWDOWN
On Sunday, June 9, 2013 at 4pm the Jersey City Food Co-Operative (JCFC) will stage its yearly family-friendly fundraising event, the JC FOOD CO-OP CHEF SHOWDOWN, wherein local chefs will battle it out for local bragging rights and the coveted JCFC CHEF SHOWDOWN prize at the Barrow Mansion at 83 Wayne Street, Jersey City, NJ. Tickets are $30 in advance; $40 at the door.
The competition pairs the culinary talents of a select group of Jersey City chefs, with seasonal ingredients, made available through the JCFC. The cheftestants are given a secret farm-fresh ingredient, delivered and revealed just days before the competition, to craft a mouth-watering dish of their choosing to share with a jury panel and event participants. A local "celebrity" panel of judges will confer and rate the dishes to choose the JCFC CHEF SHOWDOWN champion, while event attendees will vote and select the recipient of the "people's choice" award.
The event, MC'd by "Dancing Tony" Susco will also feature local craft beer, a tricky tray and silent auction and of course, knocking down pins in the mansion's antique manually-operated bowling alley.
