Human nature tends to insert judgement in every possible circumstance. People judge the working government; the non-working government; music; Miley Cyrus (the latter is justifiable); priests; rabbis; sinners; lovers...alas, nothing that conjures up sentiment is safe from an opinionated public.
Reality TV has exploited its audience's innate desire to appease their discerning tastes. One can only imagine the producers of Bravo sitting around, finding the solution to their lagging ratings: Judgement + Taste buds = Top Chef. Plug in an exotic host, and the rest is history. But what happens when Top Chef aficionados turn off the tube and are left with the real, insatiable longing to taste, imbibe and judge? Not to worry, Dishcrawl presents Battledish, the world's largest chef competition taking place in cities around the globe.
Miami Beach gets its turn on Saturday, October 5, when six local chefs will compete for the chance to be crowned King of the south (South Florida, that is). Guests will arrive at check-in and receive a map and menu of the Battledish. They will then journey through a walking adventure, arriving at each restaurant where the competing chef awaits with his creations. The chef will pair his dish with a giggle-inducing libation using Herradura Tequila. Once the "battleground" has been covered, guests will then cast their votes for various titles, such as Best Modern and Most Authentic, among others.
