Slow Food NYC’s Annual Duck-Off
April 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Slow Food NYC is hosting their annual Duck-Off, a competitive chef cook-off & tasting event, taking place from 6:30pm until 8:30pm on Wednesday April 4th at the Institute of Culinary Education. At the event, chefs will compete for your vote with their most creative duck dishes…from pressed duck on toast and duck wontons to peking duck meets and duck liver mousse with preserved cherry blossoms. Prizes will be awarded for the Judges’ Choice and the People’s Choice.
Along with sampling the creations from over a dozen chefs, duck-forward charcuterie will be provided by Hudson Valley Duck Farm and local beer, wine and cider will also be available. Guests must select the ticket option that “includes beverage” to receive two drinks during the course of the event.
Tickets to the duck tasting are $30 for Slow Food members; $35 for non-members. Tickets that include the duck tasting and two drinks are $45 for Slow Food members; $50 for non-members.
All proceeds from the Duck-Off will support Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest, our program of good food education for New York City youth at our summer, tuition-free, educational urban farm in East New York, Brooklyn and at 13 schools in the South Bronx and East Harlem, on the Lower East Side, and in Brooklyn. Urban Harvest activities include edible gardens, cooking classes, field trips, good food courses, farm-to-cafeteria days, and student run “farm stands” offering fresh, local produces. Each year, Urban Harvest programming reaches over 2,000 children.
