Hoboken is one of the cities in New Jersey most affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Food Experiments, an organization that hosts amateur cook-offs based around a theme ingredient in various cities, was planning to come to Hoboken on November 11th with The Jersey Booze Experiment. However the event had to be postponed due to the destruction Sandy caused in the Hudson County town.
Rather than cancel the event, the chefs behind The Food Experiments, Theo Peck and Nick Suarez, have done a wonderful thing. They repurposed the event as The Jersey Relief Experiment, and 100% of ticket proceeds will be donated to the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund.
The cook-off will now take place Sunday, December 2, from noon to 3 p.m at Maxwell’s in Hoboken. They are looking for New Jersey’s most daring home chefs to bring their best bite to share with a few hundred intimate friends. The audience, along with their esteemed judging panel, will decide the winners. The Experiments are a series of cook-offs that challenge amateur chefs to create samples of a dish featuring an “experimental” ingredient or theme.
The Food Experiments, with the help of our national sponsors, will also be auctioning off a number of amazing kitchen items and fun food experiences to raise even more money for the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund.
Tickets are $15.00 and that includes the ability to vote for the winner, one Brooklyn Brewery beer and a plethora of culinary delights made by the chef-testants. Not too bad for 15 bucks.
So why not come out to Maxwell’s on Sunday December 2nd? You’ll be helping victims of Hurricane Sandy and enjoying some awesome food at the same time?
