Abbey’s Kitchen Stadium: Battle Two is Here!

 

AKS_Battle02

Abbey’s Kitchen Stadium (AKS) is a celebration of Toronto’s vibrant food culture that brings together the city’s hottest restaurant, food truck and pop-up vendor chefs to raise money for local food initiative, My Food My Way. My Food My Way is a youth nutrition education program that aims to engage youth in food and nutrition in a way that makes sense to them. Rather than distributing nutrition facts or telling students what they should eat, MFMW seeks to empower them using hands-on learning, and collaborative education to make healthy choices for themselves.

AKS combines the model of the casual pop-up party with the diner interaction and entertainment quality of an action-packed cooking competition.

This is how it’s all going to go down:

At each event, there’s a secret ingredient chosen that will be revealed when you show up to the event.

Four Toronto culinary superstars will each prepare two dishes that showcase the chosen ingredient, and you will have the chance to purchase whatever your heart desires for $6 per item.  Delicious beer, wine and cocktails will also be available throughout the duration of the event for $6.

Approximately 2/3 of the way through the event, chefs will be invited one at a time to present their dishes to our panel of celebrity judges on the stadium stage. The judges will provide appropriate commentary and evaluate the dishes on taste, presentation, and originality.

Meanwhile, all of this action will be filmed and projected live onto a large screen for guests to watch, between which DJ Michael Anthony will be pumping out the tunes for your entertainment. There will also be food product gift baskets being raffled off so you could go home with a full belly AND a basket!

After each of the three consecutive battles, a winning chef will be selected to move onto the championship battle taking place at the Delicious Food Show on the Food Network celebrity stage. The final “wild card” competitor for the championship battle will be selected by YOU via an online poll.

AKS_04

BATTLE TWO Chefs:

  • Andres Marquez and Howard Dubrovsky of Fonda Lola
  • Rodney Bowers of Hey Meatball & Food Network
  • Peter Ramsay of the *NEW* Geraldine
  • Jesse Vallins of The Saint

BATTLE TWO Judges:

  • Trish Magwood (Food Network, Celebrity Cookbook Author)
  • Mike Chalut (Proud FM, TV Actor)
  • Vita Chambers (Pop Star Recording Artist of Hit Song “Fix You”)
  • Maggie McKeown (Food Network Judge)

BATTLE ONE Secret Ingredient:

Um… it’s a secret? But for those with food restrictions, please know the ingredient itself is vegetarian, dairy free and gluten free (the prepared dishes, however, may or may not be).

BATTLE ONE details:

July 21st 1-4pm
MOD Club 722 College St W

$10 tickets online. $15 at the door, pending availability. More information can be found on the facebook event page.

A portion of all food and ticket sales, and 100% of raffle ticket sales will be going to My Food My Way.

Tickets are available now via Uniiverse.
