Sacramento Veg Chef Contest

The California Vegan Chef Challenge has brought new cruelty-free options to 10 Sacramento restaurants for the month of October.

The California Vegan Restaurants organization has designed a contest to challenge local chefs’ vegan cooking skills for the entire month of October. Ten restaurants are participating by creating specialty vegan appetizers, soups, entrées, and desserts, in an effort to bring thoughtful and creative cruelty-free options to California’s capital. Diners can enter a raffle and vote for their favorite meals on the challenge’s survey—chefs with the most votes will win prizes, too. Inspired by the Bull City Vegan Challenge in North Carolina, the Sacramento-based organizers hope to inspire other cities across the nation to develop their own vegan restaurant contests.
