We are proud to announce that our Chef Chris Jack will compete in this year’s Tom Tom Founders Festival Iron Chef City Market Competition, taking place Saturday, April 15 at 10 am at the City Market.
The festival celebrates and empowers the founders of creative, civic, and entrepreneurial projects. It is a week of food, music, art, and innovation from April 10-16.
The festival’s food component centers around the theme of locally-sourced food and its accessibility – what makes the local food the standard, rather than the exception?
Saturday morning’s food programming leverages and showcases the farmer’s market as a resource for incorporating “buying local first” as part of one’s daily habits (Something we at Wild Wolf Brewing Company take very seriously – most of our food is sourced from a 30 mile radius).
Chef Chris Jack will join 5 other regional chefs participating in this year’s Iron Chef Competition.
Each chef will arrive at 9am on Saturday, April 15 to set up their stations, meet the judges and receive funds for ingredient purchases and go over the rules. Judges will be introduced and a secret ingredient will be announced at 9:45am. Chefs will then have 20 minutes to tour the farmer’s market and purchase their ingredients.
Chefs begin cooking at 10:15 am and have 30 minutes to prepare and plate their dish for judges. Presentation to the judges and judging starts at 10:45. The winner will be announced at 11:30 am.
Join us in supporting Chef Chris Jack on Saturday, April 15 at the Tom Tom Founders Festival Iron Chef Competition. Good luck Chef!!!
