OCTOBER 14TH FOR THE HUDSON VALLEY GRILL EXPERIMENT,

THE THIRTEENTH STOP ON A SIXTEEN CITY TOUR

 

The Nation’s Leading Cook-Off Organization Is Bringing Back Celebrity Judges, Creative Food Themes And The Chance At Culinary Glory For Amateur Chefs Across The Country

Sixteen cities.Four hundred amateur chefs.  Only ONE national champion. On the heels of a successful 5-city tour in 2011, The Food Experiments, the nation’s leading cook-off organization, is back with a 16-city National Tour sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery.

The thirteenth stop on the tour is The Hudson Valley Grill Experiment on October 14th, 2012.

Since its inception, The Food Experiments competitions have consistently been met with sold-out crowds. Each Experiment features roughly 25 local amateur chefs who have prepared a unique creation incorporating the food theme. Celebrating the bountiful harvest of upstate New York and the crisp early autumn, the 2012 Hudson Valley Experiment will feature inspiration through grilling. The first judges released on the esteemed judging panel are Gary Allen, “Dining In” columnist at Roll Magazine, Ray Bradley, farmer and owner of Bradley Farm, and Jeremy Kolakowski, executive chef of Rock and Rye Tavern. More judges will be released as the Experiment approaches.

Everyone in attendance will have a hand in choosing which “cheftestants” will gain bragging rights, cookware, bakeware, and cash from National Sponsors: Brooklyn Brewery, Le Creuset, Anolon, Microplane and Wusthof knives. The Grand Prize Winner will bask in culinary glory city-wide and earn a shot at the National Championships on December 16. The winner from each city’s Experiment will be flown in to Brooklyn courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery to compete with the best of the best for a chance to become The Food Experiments’ 2012 National Champion.
