Apply to compete in the cook-off!

Everyone loves a little healthy competition, but do you have the chops to make it in a cook-off between talented chefs?

We’re pleased to present Traditional Wisdom vs Future of Food, a cook-off that pits two teams that represent healthy cooking inspired by the past and future. Team Traditional Wisdom represents the wealth of knowledge from the past —think fermentation, ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, herbalism, etc. Team Future of Food represents the possibilities that science and innovation can bring, a la cultured meat, cricket powder, and CBD infusions.

If accepted, you’ll join one of the two teams and show the audience how your dish represents the past or future, along with any fun facts and relevant health benefits. The entire event will be filmed and photographed so you will have great content to show your followers. It’ll be a night to remember!
