In support of their book, Flavors of My World (Favorite Recipes Press; May 1, 2013), James Beard Award Winning Celebrity Chef and judge of Food Network’s hit show Chopped, Maneet Chauhan and co-author, Daily Food & Wine Founder and Jetset Magazine Travel Editor, Doug Singer will be conducting a 21-city book tour.
Launching on April 18th in their home city of New York, they will be traveling on a classic “Rock Star” tour bus as they make their way across the country. At each stop they will be facilitating book signings, a “One Night Only” restaurant event (where they will be partnering with a high-caliber local chef), and a ProStart cooking competition. To make it even more exciting, they will be capturing everything on film for a reality television show.
ProStart, the non-profit arm of the National Restaurant Association has 1700 locations across the country and is benefitting over 100,000 high school aged students. Their mission is to educate them in culinary arts and hospitality, ultimately certifying them and giving them the skills they need to get jobs in a competitive workplace. In each city, the top three ProStart students will compete in a classic cooking competition where they will have 40 minutes to create a healthy entrée that is indicative of contemporary American cuisine. The winner will receive a set of exclusive Gunter Wilhelm Executive Series knives, a favorite of professional chefs worldwide. Additionally, the top three ProStart student finalists will experience firsthand the thrill of taking center stage at NRA Show 2013 and the ProStart National Champion will also win additional prizes, and the honor of traveling to Washington, D.C., where they will spend the day cooking with one of the featured chefs of the White House Chef Tour™.
