Ommegang's 2nd Annual Philly Hop Chef Competiton
Tuesday - April 23, 2013 @ 07:00PM
/ Ends: Tuesday - April 23, 2013 @ 10:00PM
Beer & Food Event
, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Brewery Ommegang has announced the return of Hop Chef, the nationwide cooking competition that Philly's very own George Sabatino won last year. On Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m., six up-and-coming Philly chefs will go head-to-head in the second annual Philly Hop Chef competition, sponsored by Saveur, for a chance to rep the city in a cook-off at the brewery's annual Belgium Comes to Cooperstown beerfest in August.
Six chefs will each create one dish showcasing their imaginative beer and food pairing skills, based on five principles of pairing. The dishes, all paired with Ommegang beers, will be served to a panel of judges and to all attendees; each chef will be given 15 minutes to describe and defend his dish to the judges.
The lineup of competitors this year includes Yun Fuentes of JG Domestic, Lucio Palazzo of La Calaca Feliz, Nick Macri of Southwark, Pat Szoke of The Industry, Eli Kulp of Fork, and Mike Deganis of Alla Spina.
This year's Philly Hop Chef event is at Union Transfer, and tickets are $53.50/pp with a portion of proceeds going to support the Mural Arts Program and Groundswell.
