Summer filled with cookoffs and tastings

Chef Jason Febres has won the last two Celebrity & Chef cookoffs. He’s serving as an honorary judge this year.

This week in Go!, I have a story about the several fun foodie events that are filling the calendar this summer.

The first one on the calendar is Tuesday’s Celebrity & Chef Cookoff, an always-fun event that raises money for the Orpheum Theatre. This is the 12th year for the event, and for the first time, it sold out of all 450 of its tickets. I’m one of the judges that will get to decide when local celebrity and chef duo prepared the best dish on the spot. Hope you have your ticket already.

My story also has information on Wichita’s first ever Restaurant Week, which happens later this month, and details on Battle of the Burger, a new fundraiser at Cowtown that will try to find Wichita’s best.
