In Defense of Brunch

When Rene issued his edict on why brunch is for suckers, many of you readers echoed in agreement. But there are two sides to the coin as they say, and in 2 weeks a couple of New Yorkers are coming down South to host a home chef cooking competition that they hope will help garner support for team brunch.

What: The New Orleans Brunch Experiment
When: Sunday April 3rd from Noon till 4:30pm
Where: Howlin' Wolf
Judges: John Burns (Publisher, Edible New Orleans), Allison Vines-Rushing (MiLa), Poppy Tooker, and Dale Curry (New Orleans Magazine)
Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the event. To purchase, go here.

Brroklyn Brewery is bringing the Food Experiments, a highly successful series of amateur cookoffs launched in Brooklyn, on a multi-city tour.

Cookoff pros Nick Suarez and Theo Peck are excited to present the New Orleans Brunch Experiment, an amateur cookoff involving New Orleans’ finest home chefs. Dishes will range from savory to sweet and will feature our favorite meal of the week – Brunch! You may never look at brunch the same after attending the Food Experiments. Anyone can compete! Anyone can attend! And anyone can win! Sharpen your knives America, this is a call to all home chefs looking to be named the next cookoff king or queen of New Orleans.

The winner will not only receive cash and achieve culinary glory, but will be flown to Brooklyn, NY to compete in the National cookoff title, the super-bowl of cookoffs held at Brooklyn Brewery. You, along with our professional judging panel choose the winners!

Do you have what it takes to win? Are you experimented…

For the record, I am not against brunch. I am against eating brunch in restaurants.

That is all.
