What started out as a joke amongst friends has developed into a fundraising event for Bracken’s Kitchen, a non-profit created by Chef Bill Bracken, to end food insecurity in Orange County and beyond.
It all began when Chefs Chad Urata and Brent Omeste challenged OC Baking Company’s Master Baker Dean Kim to a pizza throwdown. Not realizing that Dean thrives on bets, Dean took it one step further and enlisted veteran OC pizza master Sandro Nardone to join him.
When other chefs catch wind of it via social media, The Veterans team is now six strong with the addition of Chef Dee Nyugen, Chef Greg Daniels, Lisa Gilmore and of course, Chef Bill Bracken.
On Sunday, January 29th, the friendly rivalry will include both teams creating their best pizza to be judged by participants at the event. Who will win the challenge? You be the judge!
Tickets are limited to 100.
All tickets include pizza, non-alcoholic beverages and a token to vote for your favorite team.
All proceeds to benefit Bracken’s Kitchen. 501C(3) Tax ID 46-2633171
