But whether it’s hot or cold outside, the heat will be on at the Sunday, February 28 chili-fest. That day’s Academy Awards ceremony is also a hot ticket in Hollywood—but who needs Oscar when you can get a fine bowl of chili right here in the Valley?
Five teams of plant-based chefs will compete before a panel of celebrity cooks and writers led by Chef Tal Ronnen. Some of the luminaries: Laura Beck, editor of Vegansaurus.com, Vegan Yack Attack blogger Jackie Sobon and Tony’s Darts Away’s own Chef Caroline Concha, winner of the 2015 cook-off.
