Operation Hotdish: The Vegan Casserole Cook-Off Approaches

Holla at the first Vegan Iron Chef fundraising event in Portland! We’re gearing up for our second annual competition this summer, and what better way to get into the spirit than a hot casserole potluck on a cold day?

The Date: February 5, 2011 5pm-7:30pm

The Cost: $5

The Location: In the upstairs Community Room at Peoples Coop3029 SE 21st Ave., Portland, OR, 97202

Sign up: Here’s the Google Docs sign up sheet. It’s not required by any means, but it helps the organizers have an idea of what to expect – and you can check out the competition! I’m thinking of making a cheezy casserole fort, myself.

Judging: The judges have been announced! They’ll be awarding their favorites, along with an Audience pick.

What to do: (which I’m copy/pasting from the facebook event, which I deem acceptable since I wrote it, ba da bing)

1. Sign up online (you may do so until an hour before the event –https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Am8YTzfgn2X7dC1QVFk5N0FaUHpzaFFjeGdkMU51dUE&hl=en&authkey=CPGFxdMK
2. Prepare a casserole (or bring a big appetite). Please note that there is no cooking at the event itself. Please warm your casserole in advance, if desired.
2. Bring $5
3. Show up at 5pm with said casserole/admission donation and your own plate and cutlery. All dishes must arrive by 5:15pm to be considered for awards placement. Please see a VIC volunteer to make sure the judges get a piece of your casserole!
4. See who wins!
5. Eat and eat some more!

Bonus: Come meet The Vegan Caterer and try some free samples!

Final thoughts: So, start daydreaming about your favorite casseroles, break out the Pyrex & spread the word to your friends in the Portland area – or consider one in your city!
