If you think March Madness is just about basketball, you haven’t read this post yet. In the month of the big basketball tournament, the Southeast Community Services will hold the cooking equivalent of March Madness for our local chefs. If your art form of choice is the culinary arts, you can seek eternal chef’s glory for a great cause.
For a $20 entry fee (all proceeds benefit the Southeast Community Services initiatives), you can be one of the 12 contestants in the challenge. Each Friday in March, the contestants will face off in groups of four. Each week, the chefs will cook a main course dish featuring two mystery ingredients. The winners from the first three weeks will compete on March 28 in the final Chopped Championship.
If you would like to take in the action of this March Madness of the kitchen but aren’t a master of the whisk and spatula, you can still attend the contests and vote on your favorites for $5 per person. The first contest is next week in Fountain Square. Specifically, the cook off takes place on Virginia Avenue in the old Indy Swank space next to Pure Eatery. If you or someone you know wants to participate, email PeggyF@southeastindy.org to enter.
