FOODIE FRIDAY: Austin Food Experiments!


If you aren’t yet familiar with Brooklyn’s Food Experiments, an homage to the fine art of competitive cooking, now’s your chance to bone up. Dynamic duo Nick Suarez and Theo Peck are kicking off their national tour here in Austin with a no-holds-barred, spatula-whippin’, food-flippin’ chance to win culinary glory and a trip to the High Holy Hipster Center of the Universe, aka BROOKLYN!

That’s right, folks: NYC-style competitive cooking meets Austin weirdos. Hold on to your holsters and steady your Stetson!

On Sunday, March 13, the Food Experimenters will be here, in the flesh, stirring up a pot of trouble filled with sweet, juicy pork for The Pork Experiment. From 12 to 4:30 PM, contestants will woo the crowd with porcine delights, in an attempt to win the title of Porkiest Pig.

Tickets to the event are $20 ($25 the day of) and enable you to sample 20 to 25 entries, sip a complimentary Brooklyn Brewery Beer (and see if it’s any match for local fave Shiner Bock!) and get your foodie flag flying with fellow Austin chowhounds at Club de Ville (900 Red River).

For more deets—or to sign up to compete!—see See you there, pork lovers!
