During YPWeek, NEWaukee invites restaurateurs, food trucks caterers, and chefs to compete in a signature showcase of their skills at the first ever Food Prize! With $500 as seed money to wow the crowd, area chefs will get creative and share their personal food mission statement on a plate. In a dynamic and lively event, guests have the opportunity to sample each of the competing chefs’ plates and vote on their favorite. The chef with the most votes at the end of the night takes home a cash prize of $5,000 and the glory of being the 2018 Milwaukee Food Prize winner!
Along with sampling food from Milwaukee’s best chefs, guests will experience live art, live music, and craft beer. Tickets are $20 and include samples from all selected chefs. This unique pop up experience connects people to the culinary arts, neighborhoods, and local small businesses in a new and delicious way!
