Boston Chefs Battle in "Food Fight" Series

By Scott Kearnan
September 17, 2013

Don't worry, you can leave your smock at home. We don't think any actual edibles will be flying during this "Food Fight" series. But impressive culinary skills? Those will be going a mile a minute. Starting Tuesday, September 24, expect talented toques around Boston to battle it out for charity in a series of face-offs that benefit Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit campaigning to end childhood hunger. Each "fight" will be themed, and next week's kick-off (going down from 7-9 PM at Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant in Southie) will pit recent Food & Wine Best New Chef winner Matt Gaudet of West Bridge against Hungry Mother chef Barry Maiden in a throwdown over Asian street food. On the horizon: chefs from Tremont 647 and BELLY Wine Bar battle over New England fare on November 12; Myers + Chang and Lincoln Tavern tackle Southern comfort food on January 14; and Coppa will take on a still-TBD restaurant on March 11 over a theme dubbed, "Spice Trade Route: Africa to Europe." Grab $20 tickets here for the September showdown, which score you a tasting dish, two drink tickets, pizza from Lincoln Tavern, Q&A with the chefs and a chance to vote for the victor; winners from each "Food Fight" event will go on to be featured in Share Our Strength's ultimate foodie fund-raiser, Taste of the Nation Boston, on April 29, 2014.
