FlapperGirl Enters the NYC TOFU TAKEDOWN!

Sunday, May 10, 2009 / 4:30 PM / HighLine Ballroom, NYC
Have you heard about that carnivorous carnival of fun here in NYC called the Chili Takedown? The NY Daily News calls it a “growing underground movement among food-obsessed New Yorkers.” Well, the takedown’s funky founder Matt Timms has created a spin-off contest for local cooks called the TOFU TAKEDOWN, and I am THRILLED to call myself one of the contestants! All chefs entered attempt to invent a stellar tofu recipe, prepare 300 bite-sized servings worth, and set up shop at NYC’s Highline Ballroom for the big taste-off. It’s open to the public, so you can come and sample all the booty, and even vote in the People’s Choice category!

What to make, what to make! My mind’s swirling with excitement; I feel kinda like Bubba with his shrimp in Forrest Gump. ;)

I hope you will all come out to support your local Flappergirl! All this fun falls at a budget-friendly ten bucks (cheaper than a large pizza pie in these parts!) Tickets sell out QUICKLY for this, so if you want in, Matt recommends ordering tickets ASAP through TicketWeb. Click here for tickets. :)

Taste 30 amateur chef's interpretations of this famed vegetable meat! Vote on the winner!

Come for the tofu, stay for the bloodbath!


"Anyway, like I was sayin', you can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, tofu-kabobs, tofu creole, tofu gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple tofu, lemon tofu, coconut tofu, pepper tofu, tofu soup, tofu stew, tofu salad, tofu and potatoes, tofu burger, tofu sandwich.

...that's about it."
