Chicken and beer go hand in hand (as evidenced by a certain rapper's forthcoming restaurant), so it should come as no surprise that this year's competition for the Food Experiments is the Atlanta Chicken Experiment, brought to the city by Brooklyn Brewery. The event will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on September 23 at the Masquerade. Read on to get the details and find out how to win free tickets (which mean free beer).
The competition showcases about 20 amateur chefs and the chicken dishes they create. Interested in competing? Fill this out to sign up. Participants will get $50 to buy ingredients to make 300 samples of their best chicken dish. They'll also have access to free beer (to drink, not to include in their recipes). The judges for the cook-off are Kevin Gillespie, cheftestapant/fan favorite and soon-to-be-former executive chef of Woodfire Grill, Cardamom Hill's Asha Gomez, and Bob Townsend, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution food writer. The trio will deem one contestant worthy of a grand prize, which consists of a trip to Brooklyn, the chance to compete in the national championship, and cookware from sponsors like Le Creuset.
For those who would rather be on the other side of the kitchen, tickets are $10 a person and include chicken samples from each of the chefs as well as a free beer. A portion of the proceeds goes toward charities that promote sustainability and local culinary education for disadvantaged youth.Eater Atlanta is giving away two pairs of tickets through this evening's newsletter, so make sure you're signed up to find out how to win.
