Fair Trade Cook Off
Received an email yesterday inviting me to participate in a "top chef-masters" style cook off in a few weeks. The event is to bring awareness to the Boston press and foodies about Fair Trade. I will be competing against 3 other chefs who are focused on sustainability, locavore mentality and supporting fair trade. I don't have many details as of yet, but what I do know is that I have to create a dish using 5 fair trade ingredients one of those MUST be coffee(Green Mountain). The other talented chefs I will be competing against are Will Gilson(Garden At The Cellar), Peter Mcarthy (EVOO) and Jay Silva (Bambara). Winner gets money to donate to a favorite charity. As I get more details I will be sure to pass along to you!
