On top of the normal bounty of prizes, the winner will also receive a private cooking party for 10 at the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Brooklyn any time in the next year. (Check out their amazing kitchen space, which we used for our own rhubarb jamming party in May.)
Ger-Nis is also extending a 25% discount to Food52 members for all events during their Chili Pepper Festival: A Celebration of All Things Hot! from Thursday, August 18th through Sunday, August 21st (including All-Access Passes) -- four days of classes on things like chili roasting and pickling, full of spicy cocktails, chocolates, and hot sauces galore. See the full calendar of classes and events here and use the promo code FOOD52.
