Cadillac Culinary Challenge today(5/21) and tomorrow(5/22) at KOP Mall

Chef Walter Staib of Philadelphia's City Tavern will be cooking off against restaurateur, and recipient of several cooking awards, Chef David Burke of New York.  This is part of the Cadillac Culinary Challenge, Saturday, May 21 to Sunday, May 22, at the King of Prussia Mall (outside of Lord & Taylor).


The weekend's events will benefit Share Our Strength organization, which fights childhood hunger in America.


"I truly believe in what Share Our Strength does. It's such a good cause, and the funds actually go to local organizations that help feed children," Staib said.


Everyone is invited to attend to watch a lively cooking competition between two talented and renowned chefs. Guests will sample the finest of cuisines, then they will compare the luxury and performance of Cadillac to its challengers from BMW, Lexus and Mercedes. It's all here at the Cadillac Culinary Challenge Test Drive, presented to you by Cadillac and its culinary partners.


Test drives run the entire program time and culinary demonstrations take place at 11:30am, 2pm and 4pm. Seating is limited to a first come, first serve basis.


The culinary battle will pit Chef Burke and Chef Staib as Burke presents a nouveau Philadelphia dish and Chef Walter Staib will be demonstrating an 18th Century Philadelphian dish,
Chicken Napoleon a la Jefferson, a dish inspired by Thomas Jefferson's known favorite foods.


"Thomas Jefferson is well known to be one of America's first gourmands, and this dish combines many of his loves, including dandelion greens and pasta. Jefferson brought the first documented pasta maker to America," Staib said.

After each cook-off, guests will be treated to each chef's dish and choose a winner. Each tasting will be hosted by a special guest emcee from Bon Appetit Magazine. There will be raffles for $50 City Tavern gift cards at each event, as well.

In addition, there will also be a Twitter Contest where people will Tweet recipes, which will be judged on content...the winner will receive a cookbook from Chef David Burke.

I will be in attendance during the Sunday session.  See ya there!
