This year marks the 30th year of the Taste of Elegance competition. It is hosted by the Iowa Pork Producers Association to celebrate pork and find Iowa’s Best Pork Entrée in fine dining.
What is the Taste of Elegance? It is a fun competition between 12 chefs. They cook their best pork dishes to compete for awards starting at $1,000 and yearly bragging rights to being the best pork chef in Iowa. The top winner also wins a trip to the National Pork Summit in California.
To help celebrate this grand anniversary of competition Iowa Pork has an invitation for TWO to attend this fabulous event to give away to my fans!! It is January 25, 2016 in Des Moines, Iowa. Reception begins at 6:30 and lasts for approximately 2 hours.
The only catch? You gotta love pork!! There will samples from each of the chefs to try and you can vote on it for the People's Choice award. There will also be wine samples from local Iowa vineyards to try.
I would love to meet you so if you are the winner, let's hook up! Maybe we can nab a photo op with my Iowa blogging (and pig farmer) friend Cristen from Food and Swine. I've already met her in person. I was her sous chef at at a bacon fest cooking show last year!
