The Hunger Games: Eat Your Words
A great big thank you to everyone who commented, emailed, RT-ed and shared my little giveaway. I had lots of great entries come in, and it was pretty tough arriving at my final decision – I finally gave up trying to decide on my own and ended up conducting a little straw poll of my top three. In any case, the winner has been chosen, and I’m in the middle of a post based on her answer so stay tuned. :)
In the meantime, we interrupt regular recipe posting for a shout out to an upcoming charity event that I’m really looking forward to – Eat Your Words. For one night only, the tables will be turned on 5 of Hong Kong’s food critics as they team up with 5 chefs and serve up a 5-course dinner to 125 members of the public to be critiqued. This fun little event is to raise funds for the same charity that I mentioned in my previous post, HK’s Foodlink Foundation.
The line up for the night consists of:
- Alicia Walker of Foodie Magazine with James Black of The Salted Pig
- Janice Jann of Time Out Hong Kong with Arturo Melendez of Chicha
- Janice Leung Hayes of e_ting with Anthony Fletcher of The Pawn
- Adele Wong of HK Magazine with Jason Black of Shore
- Ale Wilkinson of The Dim Sum Diaries with Gregoire Michaud of Bread Elements
If any of you follow Ale, Jason, Janice, Gregoire, or any of the other participants, you’d probably have been treated to a little preview of what’s to come: both in terms of their respective menu items, as well as the snipes of (not entirely) friendly competition going ’round.
On top of buying you a front row seat at this year’s Hunger Games (and whether any of these critics is worth their salt in the ktichen!), the cost of your HK$888 ticket will buy you a little sway in determining which smack talker ends up on top, once you’ve had the chance to taste each of the 5 courses of the evening. There’s also going to be an auction with loads of great prizes like food tours, cooking classes, food and hotel vouchers, as well as a date up (seriously, have you guys seen Ale? I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her and I’d bring my chequebook if I were you!) for grabs.
Date: 24 June 2013, Monday at 7pm
Location: The Salted Pig, 2/F, The L Place, 139 Queens Road Central, Hong Kong
Tickets: $888 – inclusive of 5-course dinner and drinks pairing (additional beverages can be purchased at the event), get yours exclusively from The Salted Pig
All proceeds will go to The Foodlink Foundation.
