Wheeler del Torro to Battle Biz Markie in Brighton Food Competition
The person behind an ice cream and dessert cafe in Brighton--and a series of pop-up restaurants--is going to be taking part in a food competition later this month, and his opponent will be a well-known rapper and entertainer.
On Saturday, January 26, chef Wheeler del Torro of 3 Scoops Cafe will face off against Biz Markie at the Washington Street eatery starting at 7:00 PM, with the theme being soul food (the event is celebrating the kickoff of Black History Month). The hour-long Iron Chef-style competition will have each chef creating a dish that uses a secret ingredient, with the dishes being judged by a panel of food experts and celebrities.
Biz Markie is known in part for his hit song "Just a Friend" as well as Nick Jr.'s show Yo Gabba Gabba. He also teaches healthy cooking classes through Living Social in Washington, DC.
Tickets to this event cost $70.00 and can be ordered at the link below.
The address for 3 Scoops is 403 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, 02135, and its website can be found at http://3scoopsboston.wordpress.com/
