‘Adobo Throwdown’ fest in San Antonio, Texas is back – with lots of side dishes
San Antonio, Texas’ “Adobo Throwdown Cooking Competition and Food Expo” is back, and now it’s going to be for two days.
This year’s festival is set for the weekend of August 5-6, at the Schertz Civic Center, 1400 Schertz Parkway, San Antonio.
The annual gathering began last year with local chefs competing for the best rendition of the iconic Filipino dish. Vendors, kids’ activities, dance and live music performances bolstered the main event.
This year, aside from the chef-level Adobo Throwdown, there will be several competitions for home cooks with cash prizes at stake: amateur adobo competition (Saturday); ube dessert (Saturday); Filipino BBQ (Sunday);Lumpia (Sunday).
The Adobo Throwdown will again showcase the colorful culture of the Philippines through its food music and dance.
All proceeds go to the Philippine American Chamber of Commerce-Central Texas Region Humanitarian Projects.
Tickets and a place to sign-up for the amateur cooking contests are available at the event’s website.
