pre-register using our registration form.
All ingredients must be VEGAN: no eggs, dairy (butter, milk, whey, etc.), gelatin, honey, meat, confectioner’s glaze, food dyes derived from animal products, processed/refined sugars etc. No exceptions.
If you have a question about an ingredient, email us.

Heat 1: Chefs will go head-to-head and be given 5 minutes to prepare their best vegan appetizer for the panel of judges (minimum of 20 appetizer “samples”).
Heat 2: Chefs will go head-to-head and be given 5 minutes to prepare their best vegan entree for the panel of judges (minimum of 20 entree “samples”).
Heat 3: Chefs will serve the VIP guests/judges pre-prepared desserts for their chance to win the People’s Choice Award (minimum of 50 dessert “samples”).
Bring a printed list of ingredients for those who may have allergy questions or just interested in your dish.
Make a simple sign (or an elaborate one) with the name of your dish. Be creative!
