As we mentioned and you may have seen, we added a mysterious night time guactacular session that mentioned pros competing. Here are your pros:
This is year 5. Remember year 1: 350+ people landed upon the Bell House’s front lounge much to my surprise. We ran out of chips, we ran out for chips, and then we ran out of chips. It was a crazy time. And now we’re here in year 5. So we’re doing something special. This year’s Guactacular is going to be a day of fun.
Ellie Ratcliff, Lindsay Liu and Lauren Cooper were awarded the Judge’s Favorite at the 2011 Guactacular earlier this month for their guacamole, Aviche: The Guacamole of the Sea. The ladies were kind enough to share their winning recipe with us. Enjoy!
Holy smokes kids, Guactacular is this weekend! Earlier this week, I posted some words of wisdom from some of our Guactacular competitors who have been to a Nachos NY event or two. Now it’s time to hear from the rest of the competitors. Judging by their answers, we all should be pumped to taste some insane and inventive guac this Sunday. And don’t forget about Mothers’ Day! Now, on to the hard-hitting questions.
For being apart of Guactacular, the confident competitors receive the honor of putting together 35 avocados with a variety of incredibly odd and delicious ingredients. What you might not know is, they also are competing for your and the Judges’ hearts for some pretty awesome prizes.
This is the third year we have been hosting Guactacular and some people just can’t get enough of the thrill of the competition. Some of these lucky people were in attendance and some were winners of the whole thing so we wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to some of those awesome people.
