Ah, mid-February. You’ve finally lost those five pesky holiday pounds. You’ve managed to slip on the ice only once all winter (what ice? what winter?). And now Valentine’s Day is upon us. But the best part? The first-ever NYC Vegan Bake-Off Dessert Competition!
Whether you want to indulge in the nutty delights of the very best amateur vegan bakers in town or be the maker of non-GMO goodies (we know you have a super-secret all-natural vegan recipe for dark chocolate brownies that you’re dying to share with the world, right?), head to The Bell House on Sunday, February 10 for the first Vegan Bake-Off, presented by the skint. The event is open to 15-20 everyday bakers who've got the baked goods to compete for the title of The Bestest, as voted for by judges and attendees. From cookies and mini-cupcakes, to pastries, tarts, brownies, fudges and bars, the Vegan Bake-Off is sure to be a sweet, sweet sugar high.
To help crown the earthy crunchiest of them all — and to award prizes — judges Chef Adam Sobel (owner of insanely-popular Cinnamon Snail Food Truck and Certified Orgasmic), Sarah Gross, organizer of the annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival and owner of Rescue Chocolate, and whip-smart comedian Myq Kaplan will happily indulge in the day's delicious vegan spread.
Just want to be fed and bump elbows with other local vegan-sweet seekers? Tickets for The Vegan Bake-Off are $12 in advance and $15 at the door, day of. Aspiring competitors, check our website for details on how to sign up. And to wash down all the cruelty-free deliciousness, The Bell House will be providing a list of vegan-friendly beer, wine, and liquor available for purchase.
