~EDIBLE PURSUIT~ is back, the hottest food event this side of the Bay Bridge. This time it’s going to be held at Acme Chophouse, and yours truly is the emcee. The first Edible Pursuit was a blast, and this one is shaping up to be even more intense, with over $5000 in prizes for winning teams. The Bi-Rite Market "Clerks" team is back to defend their title, and supposedly they've been memorizing the Oxford Companion to Food and Wine for training purposes (kidding).
Edible Pursuit features challenging questions about San Francisco’s local food scene, kitchen know-how, food politics, and more. Players form teams consisting of two to five people and compete for delicious prizes, including artisanal treats, restaurant gift certificates, cookbooks, and more more more!
Here's a sampling of some of the prizes up for grabs:
~ Overnight stay in a 2 bedroom residence at Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square ($525 value)
~ 4 tickets to Teatro Zinzanni ($500 value)
~ All Clad 12 qt. multi cooker/pasta serving set from Chef's Warehouse ($200 value)
~ 1 Rancho Gordo-Xoxoc Collection Sampler: small, limited production heirloom beans from indigenous farmers. Muy rare and muy cool! ($100 value)
~ Gift certificate for dining at Coi restaurant ($100 value)
