Second Annual Vegan Chef Challenge in Sacramento

For the second year, vegan chefs and restaurants are asked to create inventive and original meat- and dairy-free fare.

This October, chefs at 22 Sacramento, CA-area restaurants will offer their most imaginative vegan dishes in honor of Vegetarian Awareness Month—and for the chance to win vegan-friendly prizes, and a Sacramento Vegan Challenge certificate. Participating voters will be eligible to win prizes too, and patrons who taste test more than 10 eateries will be given a Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge Passport and be entered to win further prizes. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage restaurants in the emerging foodie city to adopt plant-based cooking and provide consumers with vegan-friendly dishes. Participating Sacramento restaurants include Tower Bridge Bistro, Capitol Garage, Dad’s Kitchen, Grange, and many more.
