January 26th Chef Battle with Biz Markie

If you are in Boston this Saturday, January 26th, come check out my chef battle with rapper Biz Markie. Here's how Grub Street explained the event:

"Yeah, we were surprised, too. But the man behind such enduring classics as "Just a Friend" has what you need: food! Yes, Markie is also a health food nut; he even teaches healthy cooking classes in Washington, D.C. He'll go up against chef Wheeler del Torro at 3 Scoops Cafe (403 Washington St., Brighton) on Janaury 26 at 7 p.m., whipping up soul food with secret ingredients in honor of Black History Month.

Dishes will be judged by a panel of experts. Singing is optional. No, it's not quite Charlize Theron on Top Chef, but still. Would MC Hammer ever do this?"

Tickets to this incredible event are available through Kickstarter for any pledge over $10. Just make your pledge and email rayna [at] kitchntable.com.
