Calling all foodies. Are you a raw food genius who creates a masterpiece or two every week with your CSA share? Now is your chance to put your brilliance on display. The Rawfully Organic Co-op is hosting an iron chef style competition on their Facebook page.

Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, founder of the Rawfully Organic Co-op, is asking fans to submit pictures and videos of their recipes on the Facebook page and then get others to “like” their creation. There will be four winners, one for each week. The recipes with the most “likes” will go on to compete in the live round. The best part? It’s not just about raw. It’s also about organic, healthy, seasonal and local.

The four winners will convene at the “Eat it Raw Iron Chef Challenge” in Houston, Texas on October 25th during the Tuesday pick-up. Working off of ingredients from that weeks share, and one mystery ingredient to be revealed on the day of the event, contestants will be forced to think on the fly and include it in their smoothie, salad, dressing, cold soup, and raw dessert. We hope you do well in front of a live audience because the event is expected to draw 500 people and a slew of media.

The “Eat it Raw Iron Chef” competition will raise money for the Rawfully Organic Co-op, a local foodie hotspot with over 4,000 members that has already raised over $2 million dollars for the Houston agricultural community.

The winner of the event will get an hour of raw food coaching from Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram as well as an assortment of other prizes sustainable minded folks will love.
