It’s the "Canalside Food Fight"

Beginning on May 11th, and continuing through the rest of 2013, Buffalo Soup-Fest and
Canalside Buffalo will be bringing you a series of open-to-the-public "FOOD TRUCK"
competitions right on Buffalo’s historic waterfront.

At each event, competitors will compete with nothing but their mobile kitchens and
the secret “inspiration” that is provided to them by our experts. This inspiration can
be anything from SNOW to STEEL and it is up to the competitor to determine the best
way to represent that inspiration in their dish.

The competitors will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges at each event
culminating in a championship event to be held at the end of the year to crown
a Grand Champion.

This is a great opportunity for you to see many of Buffalo’s mobile food vendors in one
place and sample the future of the Western New York Culinary Scene! They will be
serving to the public the whole time!

CONTEST RULES and TIMES:

2:00 PM Competitors will be presented with the secret “inspiration” at the main stage.  Public service also begins.

2:15 PM Competitors begin preparing their special dish from scratch.

5:30 PM Competitors will present their dish to the judges and explain its ingredients and how it relates to the inspiration. Relation to the inspiration can be as specific or abstract as the competitor chooses and the judges will determine a score from 1-5 in the categories of taste, presentation, originality, and relevance to the inspiration. Judges will deliberate.

6PM An award presentation will take place on the main stage. Awards will be given for first, second and third place.

Each winner will accumulate points at each event in the series. The series will culminate on December 14th at Canalside. The competitor who, at the end of the December 14th competition, has accumulated the most points, will be crowned Grand Champion.
