Before Chili, Chocolate: A Sweet Amateur Cook-off
The weekend before the aromas of meat, beans, and spices take over the Bell House, the place will be filled with teeth-rotting goodness from amateur chefs competing in The Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment. Theo Peck and Nick Suarez, of Experiments Cheese and Beer, have teamed up with Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs from Food52 for the event. Celebrity judges include Bon Appetit's Andrew Knowlton and Ben Van Leeuwen of the eponymous ice cream truck. (Note to competitors: for heaven's sake, no Death-By entries, please.)
