Want to participate in the ultimate cooking challenge? Join us and try out your culinary skills in a mystery ingredient cookoff. Compete against other skilled chefs in one of 3 categories: appetizer, entree or dessert. Note in your RSVP that you'd like to participate as a chef and prior to the event (1 week's notice please), let us know the category you'd like to participate in. We would like at least 3 people participating in each category, so the earlier you decide, the more likely you'll get to cook the type of dish of your choice.
On the day of the event, participants will be emailed their list of key ingredients (3-4) which will need to be acquired if not already owned. All ingredients must then be utilized as a main component in the dish they prepare and bring to the event. Dishes will be judged by presentation, creativity and taste.
Want to attend but not participate in the challenge? Great! We would like to make the event a potluck as well. Bring your favorite fall dish to share. Blackbird Wine will have wine for us to purchase to enjoy our evening.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING, PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IMMEDIATELY SO I MAY ADD YOU TO THE EVITE.
