WHO WILL WIN THE 2011 BELT???
Due to the success of the 2010 event they want to make it bigger for 2011! It is going to be a blast. My goal this year is to allow access for a larger group of people, bring in more media and raise more money for the charity.
List of what I need from team captains:
1: Coca-Cola is planning to give each contestant a gift card from Coca-Cola for $200 as a reward for your selection as a team member of the event and just like last year MillitaryChefs.com will be certifying each contestant with a MilitaryChef Certification so, if you haven’t already, please finalize your teams please get me their names, bios and a pic. There will be 6 members per team with no runners this year.
2. Team captains will be receiving 25lbs to 50lbs of chocolate tallow and a carving kit shortly. Tallow will be produced before the event and carvings will be displayed on your buffet. Your sculpture will NOT be auctioned off for this charity. You will keep your sculpture this year. We will still be auctioning off chefs coats and other items to support the Charity. Please send me the address where you would like the tallow.
3: I need you to go to Rosseto web page and send me your request for Liteware. Please order 100 for each of your 6 products. Please get this to me as soon as possible so I may place the order. http://www.rosseto.com/Gallery/?g=75 Check out what they did with the liteware last year here http://www.flickr.com/photos/5...s/72157625186575420/
4. New Chef is providing Chefs Coats again this year and needs the names of your team members so.. once again let’s confirm the teams and get the names to me so I can place this order.
5. We need your invites as soon as possible. You may think you don’t want to invite anyone now but once this event will be much bigger than it was last year you will be begging me for more invites. As of now contestants can invite an unlimited amount of guests this year. Coca-Cola will send invites to the people you list.
6. I also need your Coca-Cola drink recipes. Examples Here http://www.militarychefs.com/1...llenge2009Punch.html
