Want to win 2 tickets to the Fabulous Food Show?

Update: Congrats to entry #20 – Courtney M. for being selected on random.org as the giveaway winner!

Nov. 11-13 at the I-X Center

Of course you do!

Between the Piston Power Show and this weekend’s LEGO KidsFest, the I-X Center has been hosting a lot of fun events lately. However, one of their most popular (and my favorite from years past) is right around the corner:

Fabulous Food Show

Now in its 6th year, the Fabulous Food Show (Nov. 11-13) is one of my earliest memories of Cleveland. Right after moving here, we attended our first Fabulous Food Show where Scott and I watched a taffy-making demo and met our favorite Food Network chef (tied with Michael Symon, of course!) — Alton Brown.  

While Alton won’t be there this year, there are plenty of Food Network culinary personalities to look forward to, including Michael Symon, Ace of Cakes and Sugar High’s Duff Goldman, Guy Fieri, Dinner Impossible’s Robert Irvine and Bobby Flay.

The celebrity chefs will be hosting live cooking demos in the Main Kitchen Theatre, which boasts new theatre-style seating instead of the metal bleachers from years past. The Celebrity Autograph Pavilion will also be open if you have that cookbook you’d like signed by one of the chefs.

Although I’m a little bummed Duff is only going to be there on Friday when I’m at work (Scott and I are huge fans), there are plenty of other things to check out at the Fabulous Food Show including:

  • Culinary Celebration Theatre including demos by local talents Chef Kimberly McCune and Michael Ruhlman, as well as others
  • More Chef Demo Stages like The Plain Dealer Taste of the Neighborhood Stage and Farmers’ Market Stage
  • Sweet Street‘s decadent dessert demos and cake walk (another of my favorite show higlights)
  • The Grand Tasting Pavilion featuring wines, beer, Food2 mixologists Alie & Georgia and a Chocolate Bar with chocolate and wine pairings
  • More than 225 food vendors to browse for early holiday shopping (or yourself!)

Additionally, included in every Fabulous Food Show ticket is admission to the Cleveland By Hand show which will also be going on in the I-X Center that weekend.

The Cleveland By Hand Fine Art and Craft Festival features more than 225 quality artistans — from fine oil paintings to pottery, leather tanning, metalsmithing  and woodcarving.

General admission tickets to the Fabulous Food Show are $25. Reserved seating for the Main Kitchen Theatre (which I’d recommend after not getting them in the past), VIP Meet and Greet packages, and $10 wine and spirit tasting passports are also available at an additional cost. 

Tickets can be purchased here or you can enter my giveaway to win 2 General Admission tickets!

    I would love to see Bobby Flay! though that dessert demo and cakewalk also sound pretty awesome!

    I also tweeted, follow you on twitter and like you on facebook!

  2. Courtney M

    I would honestly love to meet Guy Fieri. He is ridiculous and would really enjoy a picture with him. Here’s hoping he wears the backwards sunglasses!

  3. Christy

    I’m most looking forward to the vendors. I like finding new things to cook with, whether they’re tools or spices or sauces.

  4. Renee

    I’d love to see Robert Irvine’s kitchen demo, as I’ve never gotten to see him cook a meal of his choosing! I’ve only ever seen him work until crazy pressure on Restaurant or Dinner Impossible.

  5. Brian Budd

    Even though she will not be appearing at the 2011 show, Giada De Laurentiis is my favorite chef.

    I’ve never been before, so this year I’m looking forward to going! I have only heard great things. I can’t believe some of the things I’ve missed out on even though I’ve lived in CLE all my life!

  7. Nicole K - Mentor

    If I win the tickets, this will be my first time experiencing the Fabulous Food Show! I would really enjoy going and possibly meeting the celeb chefs. I don’t have a favorite chef but love them all!

    My favorite celebrity chef is Alton Brown! Not only does he cook great food but he’s also very funny! His segment at the food show was amazing!
