The Great CSA Smackdown - January 5
Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
The Great CSA Smackdown has been rescheduled for January 5
Since 1995, Just Food has trained over 110 community groups to start and run Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) projects in NYC. CSAs buy shares in a farmers’ growing season and in return receive weekly neighborhood deliveries of fresh produce. Each week, over 36,000 CSA members experience the joys and challenges of preparing and eating all of their fresh produce.
Just Food is excited to bring this challenge to life with the GREAT CSA SMACKDOWN: a citywide cooking competition for members of Just Food Network CSAs. Putting culinary chops and local food knowledge to the test, everyday chefs will face off in this exciting cooking competition. CSA members will be pitted against each other as they prepare a delicious dish around an assortment of ingredients directly from their CSA share! With only moments to plan and 30 minutes to cook, competitors will need to rely on their speed, skill and creativity to make the cut. Winners will advance to a city wide final-round event, representing their CSA community in the quest to come out on top of the GREAT CSA SMACKDOWN.
