The Acta Non Verba Brunch Challenge!

July 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Brunch, anyone?

You are cordially invited to watch and/or participate in ANV’s very first Cooking Challenge!*

Watch ANV Board members compete simultaneously in a high-stakes (and probably hilarious) brunch cook-off where they’ll be judged on presentation and taste. Each of our 4 Celebrity Chefs: Chef Jennifer Booker, Chef Nikki Shaw, Chef Bryant Terry and Alice Waters of Chez Panisse will demonstrate how to prepare a different brunch dish, while the amateurs try to keep up! Purchase a VIP Ticket and join a team yourself!

This online event will feature live commentary by favorite, HILARIOUS supporters of Acta Non Verba’s mission: Kana Azhari, DeAngela Cooks and Chefarmer Matthew Raiford and promises to be an entertaining spectacle! The audience is encouraged to keep our commentators busy with questions and to show support (even GENTLY heckle!) via the chat feature. The team with the highest score wins FABULOUS PRIZES (see VIP Ticket description below).

(*This event is for 18+ …because language! When tensions are high, words may fly!)

Choose your ticket!

Tier 1: $25

Follow ONE team of your choice, live online (details will be emailed to ticket holders). Recipe provided after the event.

Tier 2: $50

Full livestream access to all 4 teams in Zoom breakout rooms (if you can keep up!) Recipes provided after the event, PLUS a recording of each class, so…

“You can practice as you wish, till you’ve mastered every dish!”

VIP Ticket: $150 (limited)

Join a team! Participate live!

Be a contestant on the team of your choice. Your cooking adventures will be streamed live as you and your teammates follow the professional chef who heads your group.

The livestream audience VOTES for their favorite team!
