EggFEST Cook-Off Rules
We are very EGGcited!
Thanks for Signing up to Compete!
Without you Eggfest is simply a bunch of hungry people hanging out in a parking lot.
NEW to 2019 - Contestants can set up at 2PM Friday and select their spot under the tent and 300 "bite size" samples of BOTH MEAT & SIDES REQUIRED (we are not asking you to cook more, we are asking you to serve less). Sides will be judged in 2 categories "Savory & Sweet" (1st place and Runner up awarded to the Savory Category and 1st place and Runner up awarded to the Sweet Category). Please understand you can only enter one Side Category... you choose Savory or Sweet.
EggChefs can set up Friday the 21st in the secured tent at the Alaska Airlines Center from 2pm-5pm and should join us for the EggChef Meet & Greet at 5 pm under the tent at the Alaska Airlines Center. Lighting of the Eggs will immediately commence, (if you are staying the night for a long cook there will be designated RV parking). Please plan to light your Egg as early as you need to in order to have your food to a judge by 10am on June the 22nd, and to have food ready when the hungry crowds arrive by 11am on June the 22nd. You may prepare rubs or sauces ahead of time, but all cooking must be done onsite. EggChefs should be prepared to provide a minimum of 300 bite sized samples of the meat and 300 bite sized samples of the sides to our tasters. Remember, you are providing bite sized samples – you are not expected to provide a meal. More is fine and you are encouraged to show off your skills! Generators are allowed. Pasta may be boiled at home and brought on site, but can also be boiled on site with a hot plate as well. We assume you will be cooking on your assigned egg for the entire day. Tasters will each pay $15 admission to try your fare from 11a to 2p, with 50% of admission going to MDA. Tasters will cast votes for the People’s Choice Award for best meat and best side - with the winner taking home more great prizes. The people’s choice awards will be based on the food that is presented to the judges, so you will want to have enough of what you provided to the judges for the tasters.
