SF Food Wars
Tickets for this coming weekend’s SF Food Wars sold out in one hour and 3 minute.
And that's not just because this month’s food war is called the “The Mini Cupcake Clash" and the 170 ticket-holders are the designated eaters. Last month, tickets for Mac and Cheese competition sold out in 20 hours.
And that’s not just because Mac and Cheese is the savory comfort food equivalent to the cup cake.
Food warfare is just plain fun -- whether it’s a high school cafeteria food fight with edible projectiles or an Iron Chef culinary show-down.
Tickets for the October 18th SF Food Wars went on sale at 12 noon on Monday. One hour and 3 minutes later, the event –The Mini Cupcake Clash – was sold out.
San Francisco Food Wars, a taste test competition (not a cafeteria-style food fight) held its inaugural food-off last month with The Mac Battle Royale w/ Cheese.
It all started when Jeannie Choe, a designer, photographer and maker of dog treats, came here from New York a year ago and “and saw a huge void where community food-offs should've been.”
