Disclosure: I'm a member of the Austin Food Blogger Alliance but the prize for this giveaway was not sponsored. It was provided by me.
You guys know how I feel about cook-offs and about blogging so you can imagine my excitement when The Austin Food Blogger Alliance announced that they'd be throwing a cook-off. It's like my two favorite things mashed up into a big pile of awesome. Immediately I began dreaming up curry dishes I could whip up for my entry. Massaman ice cream? Red curry caramel flan? Saag sushi? I had ideas, people. BIG IDEAS!
But then life slapped me with a big fat fist full of reality. I just started a business last week - a business that will be taking up my entire weekend, EVERY WEEKEND, from now on. There's just no way I can possibly make something to share at a cook-off next weekend. Realistically, I probably won't even be able to attend! It's a crime, but that's how these things go, right? Sometimes to get what you want you have to give up something else you also really want.
Still, I love the AFBA, and cookoffs, and I want to see this event succeed. I also want to live vicariously through the people who will be out there tasting all of this magical competitive curry, SO I've purchased two tickets that I plan to give away to one lucky winner. If you live in Austin, or if you'll be visiting on the weekend of April 16, do me a favor and get your butt to Shanri-La for this event. You'll get to taste delicious creations from some of our city's most food-obsessed cooks and hang out with my some of my very favorite people.
