2nd Annual Vegan Hot Dish Cook-Off!



For the second year in a row, ARC is sponsoring the annual Twin Cities Vegan Hot Dish Cook-off. We’re looking for ten or fifteen contestants who have original hot-dish recipes just burning up their recipe boxes. (For you non-Minnesotans, a hot dish is a meal that is cooked and served in one dish, known as a casserole elsewhere, oh ya.)

If you'd rather eat than compete, just show up with some dollars and you can try samples of any hotdish you like for $1 each! There will also be door prizes drawn throughout the event, so you could win fabulous prizes just for showing up and eating some delicious vegan food. 


For those of you who have some mad hotdish skills, we’ll have two prize categories - Audience Favorite and Judge’s Pick – and lots of fun prizes for the winners. We will also have acclaimed judges and few other surprises to look forward to.


A $20 deposit will reserve your spot and you’ll get your deposit back in full on the day of the contest. Plus, contestants will also receive a $10 gift card on the day of the contest from Ethique Nouveau, the Twin Cities vegan boutique. Join us for this fun event, and bring some friends with you too, because hotdish is always better shared with loved ones, don'tcha know.


To compete in the event and make your deposit, please call the Animal Rights Coalition headquarters (also known as Ethique Nouveau, Minnesota's only vegan boutique) at[masked]-6161.

    Loved meeting new people and trying tasty dishes (even if I couldn't try them all!)

    How fun! I don't think I'll make anything but will be there to taste these tasty treats! I think my mom even wants to come. :)
