If you’ve had the pleasure of attending any of the Nickel City Chef cooking battles, you know that the local chefs competing for top culinary honors sure can make creative, mouth-watering dishes from a limited supply of ingredients. Now, you can channel a little of the chefs’ kitchen inspirations with a brand new cookbook, set to go on sale later this month.
“Nickel City Chef: Buffalo’s Finest Chefs & Ingredients,” written by local food guru Christa Glennie Seychew, “features 32 recipes, farm profiles, chef biographies, competition insights,” and a DVD with competition videos and special footage. The official book launch is Oct. 25, and there’s a free launch party for anyone interested in meeting the team behind the book, obtaining autographs from the chefs featured in the book, or snagging some tasty snacks. Oh, and there’s a cash bar (woot, woot).
The festivities run from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Artisan Kitchens and Baths, home to the Nickel City Chef competition. Guests are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Food Bank of Western New York. Get more info at the official Facebook event page.
Reserve a copy of the cookbook-DVD combo from Buffalo Heritage Unlimited for about $25. Hey, it’s never too early to start your holiday shopping, especially if you have a foodie among your family and friends.
