I got an email about the Food Experiment a few weeks back, and in a fit of giddy rapture and blind stupidity, I signed up to compete. Nevermind that I have to make enough tastings for 250 to 300 people. Nevermind that this is going to take a lot of time and money. Nevermind that I completely forgot about my high school reunion that weekend, making it impossible for me to get to New York for the weekend (I'm still INCREDIBLY bummed about missing it). As Phil keeps telling me, "Just remember, we get chef's coats. Or maybe we should have just bought ourselves chef coats." What sort of hot taco mess did we get ourselves into?
So my DC readers, this is where I implore you to show up on Sunday, May 15th and support Bon Appetit Foodie (aka our team name: The Mad Cows) in this crazy competition. Maybe we'll win and go on to compete in the All-Star Cookoff in Brooklyn. Maybe we'll just eat tacos and have a good time. Either way, there's sure to be some culinary glory in store for me and Phil. Remember to come say hello and vote for us!
Here are the important deets:
What: Taco Cookoff, Hosted by The Food Experiment
Where: Rock and Roll Hotel
When: May 15th, 12-3 PM
How much: $10 in advance, $15 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will go to Capital Area Food Bank.
Looking forward to seeing you there over some delicious tacos!
