Get ready to battle: Battledish food competition coming to Bay Meadows Saturday
October 01, 2013, 05:00 AM By Bill Silverfarb Daily Journal

Dishcrawl founder Tracy Lee (center) and her team are hosting an international culinary competition called Battledish this weekend at Bay Meadows. The competition will be held in 13 cities from Seattle, Fargo, N.D., St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, Miami, Washington, D.C., Edmonton, Alberta and San Mateo among a few others.

Dishcrawl founder Tracy Lee is at it again.

After bringing the experience to downtown San Mateo more than two years ago, with about 50 participants strolling through the area and sampling some of its restaurants’ finest food and drinks, she and her team will broaden the experience this weekend at Bay Meadows in an international culinary competition called Battledish.

Dishcrawl has expanded from the Bay Area, first starting in San Jose and Palo Alto, to 125 cities in the United States and Canada, Lee told the Daily Journal.

This weekend’s competition will be held in 13 cities from Seattle, Fargo, N.D., St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, Miami, Washington, D.C., Edmonton, Alberta and San Mateo among a few others.

Lee started Dishcrawl with the idea to promote friendship in face-to-face interactions while enjoying good food in a variety of settings. The idea has taken off and up to 15 food trucks from the Bay Area will compete in the Saturday competition.

The food truck craze is evolving, she said.

Foodies still seek out their favorite food truck dishes by traveling to where the truck is parked, she said.

Chefs with Frozen Kuhsterd will compete in Battledish, which will pair different dishes with wine, beer or a cocktail.

“People are psychotic about frozen custard, it’s crazy,” Lee said.

Others competing include: We Sushi; Tia Maria; Cluck it Up; Derby Cocktail Co.; Waffle Amore; Soulnese; Naked Chorizo; Red Sauce Meatballs; Tina Tamale; Yummi BBQ; El Calamar; Me So Hungry Too; Meet N Potatoes; and Sugar and Spun.

Thousands are expected to show up at Bay Meadows Park Saturday.

The winners will be chosen by the crowd and celebrity judges, each with a 50 percent say in who tantalized taste buds the best.

Battledish will feature concept dishes from competing chefs at $5 per plate.

A live Bluegrass band will be featured and attendants can picnic in the park. There will also be face painting and raffle prizes.

The Saturday event is open to the public and $10 tickets are almost sold out. A flight of three cocktails will also be sold for $10.

There are different packages too where foodies can sample a variety of offerings from $35 to $100.

The event starts at 11 a.m.
