The competition is fierce in Abbey's Kitchen Stadium! *giveaway*

I have two tickets for this weekend's much-anticipated Abbey's Kitchen Stadium (AKS) event that I can't use, so I'm giving them away!

The Event:
Abbey's Kitchen Stadium: Battle Three (19+ event)
Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 1-4pm
722 College Street

AKS celebrates Toronto's vibrant food culture and brings together some of city’s hottest restaurant, food truck and pop-up vendor chefs to raise money for a local food initiative, My Food My Way. AKS has been modeled after the popularity of reality Food Network competition programs such as Chopped, Iron Chef, and Top Chef.

A secret ingredient will be revealed at the event and four of Toronto's culinary superstars will each prepare two dishes that showcase the chosen ingredient. Each chef will then be invited to present their dish to the celebrity judges on the stadium stage. Attendees will have the chance to purchase the dishes for $5 each.

Battle Three Chefs: 
Carl Heinrich (Richmond Station, Food Network's Top Chef Winner!)
Dave Sidhu (Playa Cabana)
Thomas Davis (The Stockyards)
Dustin Gallagher (Acadia, Food Network's Top Chef Competitor)

Battle Three Judges: 
Vikram Vij (Celebrity Restauranteur)
Alex Lifeson (Rush Guitarist & Rock Hall of Famer) 
Liem Vu (Host for Global TV's The Morning Show) 
Dee Brun (Cocktail Deeva, Stephen and Chris Show) 
Susan Merry (Owner, All the Best Fine Foods)
