Are you ready for a disaster? The next hurricane to hit the Houston area, or some other event?
In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, many parts of our area were without power for days. It could happen again. Learn how to prepare for a disaster, and how to make the most of the non-perishable foods to keep on hand in your emergency kit.
Celebrity chefs, including David Grossman (Fusion Taco), Jonathan Jones (El Big Bad), Travis Lenig (Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette), Kate McLean (Tony's), and Kevin Naderi (Roost, Lilo & Ella) will be on hand to compete to create the best dish from the non-perishable foods typically found in a disaster preparedness kit.
Media judges (including yours truly) will select a winner based on taste, creativity, and presentation.
But this event offers even more than the cook-off: Examples of emergency response equipment, disaster preparedness information, and exciting giveaways, including free picnic blankets for the first 50 attendees.
