Cookie, the award-winning eatery in Glasgow’s southside, launches the first ever Chef Wars event on Sunday 30 May at 6.30pm.
Inspired by the popular Secret Wars format (www.secretwars.co.uk), Chef Wars will pit three volunteer cooks – professionals versus professionals and amateurs versus amateurs – against each other by preparing three mains and three puddings to be judged on the night by Cookie customers.
Cookie co-owner, Domenico del Priore, said, “Chef Wars is all set to be a great night of food, wine and fun, hosted by a special guest MC. For once our own chefs get to take the back seat and overview new budding chefs at work.
“Our competitors will be given expert advice from our team of professionals at hand, covering everything from planning to sourcing, cooking and presentation. All dishes will be fresh, seasonal and European, with vegetarian options always on offer – and various Cookie prizes in Conzo’s tote Bags are at stake!”
Any budding chefs up for the challenge should contact Cookie on 0141 423 1411 to volunteer. Customers can book a ring-side seat at the event by booking now on the same number. Tickets cost £20, covering the price of the meal and a glass of wine.
Chef Wars is the latest part of Cookie’s ongoing programme to break down the barriers between food production, distribution, preparation and consumption from its base at 72 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow.
