The Beer For Brains Foundation’s EPICURIAD 2017 is April 29, and for this competition we have street food chefs getting out of the truck and into the kitchen to compete in a gourmet pairing competition.
The evening begins with an exciting VIP face-off between two award-winning Street Food Celebrity Chefs, where a flip of the coin will determine whether they cook with beer or wine and they will have thirty-five minutes to create a delicious entrée using the spirits and ingredients provided. The face-off will be between Executive Chef Jordan Murray of Rock A Belly, Food Network’s Eat St., Season 5 (Cooking Channel airing in U.S.) vs Chef Tim Cobb of United Lunchadores, Street Food Chef of the Year 2015.
The main event follows where event attendees will enjoy a large sampling of gourmet dishes prepared by a total of 12 Street Food Chefs, all paired with craft beer and wine, in an intimate setting. The event will feature the first craft beer from the country of Jordan, Carakale Brewery, and out-of-state beer from Deadbeach Brewery in El Paso, Texas.
The event raises money for brain cancer research. Louis Dolgoff, founder, created this after his wife, Laurie, died of brain tumor.
