This past Wednesday I was invited by The Blogger Connection to attend a great NYC event sponsored by San Pellegrino, their Almost Famous Chef Challenge at the Astor Center and write a guest post.
The program consists of 10 regional competitions (nine U.S .and one Canada) where students compete before the influential media and renowned chefs throughout January and February, leading to the final competition in March in Napa Valley, California. New York was the location of the Northeast competition.
During the finals competition, regional winners showcase their culinary skills for the chance to win more than $20,000 and a one-year paid apprenticeship with a celebrity chef. Winners from past S.Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Competitions have gone on to become successful restaurateurs.
Hop on over to The Blogger Connection to read about this great contest and a fun evening.
