“We’re really pleased with the way Central Kentuckians have embraced EGGFest and the Big Green Egg – which is changing the way people are cooking outdoors,” Chef Shannen Bunton Chief EGGfest organizer, said. “The food is phenomenal, seeing the variety of food you can cook on the Big Green Egg is incredible, meeting the many ‘EGGHeads’ who love it is fun and it’s a great way to give back to the community.”
Widely acclaimed as the original America-designed ceramic cooker, the Big Green Egg’s design is based on an ancient clay cooking device known as a “kamado” – which was a clay vessel with a lid. According to the manufacturer, today’s Big Green Egg is a “modern ceramic marvel known for producing amazing culinary results for novices and experts alike for over 30 years!”
“This year, we will have several local restaurants participating in the Grilling Competitions! Entries so far include: Bella Notte, Lyles BBQ, Wild Thyme, Athenian Grill, City BBQ, Mr. Kebab, Papa Murphy’s, Han Cook In and More! Expect some amazing foods being grilled on the EGG!!”
At the event, food fans can attend FREE grilling classes hosted by Chefs, buy raffle for their chance to win a MiniMax Big Green Egg! Live music, bouncy play structures for kids, face painting, and several other exciting events are also being planned!!
