A highlight at this years eat fest will be the annual chef competition, which pits talked-about local toques Sergio Romero of Argyll and Jay Spickelmier of Jing in a fierce cookoff, with commentary by none other than pastry chef and Food Network personality extraordinaire Keegan Gerhard of D Bar Desserts. And to keep things lively, the Informants will provide live music as a backdrop to food of every stripe and cuisine under the sun. Double yum.
