This Saturday, 20 chefs or teams will compete for the title of Best Vegan Chef in Chicago to raise money for animal-welfare organization Mercy For Animals. The event is sponsored by Upton’s Naturals, and participants will use the company’s seitan to create a savory dish that audience members will appraise for a suggested donation of $1 per sample. The competitor or team who sells the most samples will be crowned as the winner, and the top three chefs will win gift certificates and prizes from some of Chicago’s top vegan-friendly businesses.
