The Vegan Cook-Off: Hors d'Oeuvres Competition
The NYC Vegan Bake-Off Dessert Competition in February was such a delicious success, and made us feel so warm and fuzzy (and like we needed a nap after our sugar crash), that we've put together another scrumptious vegan cooking competition. This time around we're ditching the utensils all together and digging in with our hands: Get your gullets ready for cruelty-free finger-lickin' appetizers at the NYC Vegan Cook-Off: Hors d'Oeuvres Competition!
Whether you're into traditional bar food bites - a la fabulously seasoned french fries or not-pigs-in-a-blanket - amuse-bouches that aim to please the crowd in their all-natural vegan-ness, or want to go all-out with surprising savory snack creations, head to The Bell Houseon Sunday, June 2 for the skint's Vegan Cook-Off: Hors d'Oeuvres Competition. The event is open to 15-20 everyday chefs who have got the tapas to compete for the title of The Bestest, as voted for by judges and attendees. From dips and spreads to crostini and mini-sandwiches to sushi rolls, mock chicken wings, and beef-less BBQ and beyond, the Vegan Cook-Off is sure to be bountiful buffet of goodness.
To help crown the lip-smacking savoriest of them all - and to award a $250 cash prize to the winner - judges Terry Hope Romero (VegNews's Best Vegan Cookbook Author award three years in a row for Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook amongst others), resident carnivore and BBQ master behind New York Magazine's 5-star review of BrisketTown, Dan Delaney, and a third judge to be announced soon will happily indulge in the day's delicious vegan spread.
Aspiring competitors should check our website for details on how to sign up. But if you just want to be fed and brush elbows with other local veggie seekers, tickets for The Vegan Cook-Off are $12 in advance and $15 at the door day of. And to wash down all the cruelty-free deliciousness, The Bell House will be providing a list of vegan-friendly beer, wine, and liquor available for purchase.
