Posted on

Crave LexingtonTo kick off Lexington’s first outdoor food and music festival, organizers of Crave Lexington are rolling out a series of mini events to whet the palate before the main course on Sept. 21 – 22 at MoonDance at Midnight Pass amphitheater in Beaumont Circle.

Crave Lexington is a Smiley Pete Publishing production.

In July, locals who think they know their way around the kitchen are encouraged to enter the Crave Best Home Chef Competition, which seeks to honor the best made-from-scratch chef through a recipe and cooking challenge. The top three recipes will be chosen and a one-hour challenge will take place at Sullivan University Culinary School where a panel of the area’s top chefs will choose the best home chef. The winner will be cooking on the Crave Lexington main stage and have their wining recipe featured at the festival. The deadline to enter the challenge is July 24, to submit a recipe e-mail wecravecooks@smileypete.com; for more information, click here.

August brings a collaborative pop-up event with Chamber Music Festival at West Sixth Brewery and Crave Lexington Sunday Fare, a pass-the-plate brunch at MoonDance. On Aug. 17, Crave presents a Chamber Music Festival, West Sixth Brewery, and mobile food truck collaboration featuring a musically inspired menu by Fork in the Road Mobile Gallery. Crave Lexington Sunday Fare, on Aug. 25, teams food trucks and top area chefs to produce a sit down, pass-the-plate brunch at Moondance (seating is limited to 100).
