If you’re a regular Ecorazzi reader than you must know about my “Top Chef” addiction. True, Padma Lakshmi’s on my list for doing those ridiculous Hardee’s commercials. Yes, Tom Colicchio sold his soul to the devil and now peddles Diet Coke. Correct, I can’t eat a DAMN thing those chefs make (and am morally against 99.7 percent of it), but for some reason I just can’t stop watching.  Lucky for me I’ve been given a chance to channel my culinary intestrests into something way radder!

On Saturday, September 26th, I’ll be a judge at the Veggie Conquest event here in New York City along with vegan bakery owner Amy Lynn Herman and restaurateur Deborah Gavito. Joshua Katcher from The Discerning Brute will host.

Veggie Conquest is a monthly all vegan amateur cooking competition where contestants create dishes based on a secret ingredient. At the event, judges and tasters choose the top dish and prizes are awarded to the favorites. Basically it’s the sauce!

Taster tickets are sold out, however  2 chef spots still remain. Think you’ve got what it takes to make a delicious vegan dish? Visit VeggieConquest.com and sign up. See ya there!
