Kitchen ninjas sought for Taste of Buffalo bouts

Prep cooks or others with top-notch knife skills are wanted for a July 10 contest that's part of the Taste of Buffalo.

Sous chefs - the second-in-command cooks in many kitchens - are sought for another contest a day earlier, on July 9.

Applicants have until June 10 to email Include your name, age, hometown, current occupation, and a few words about why you should be picked to compete.

Here's the details, from organizer Christa Glennie Seychew:

"The first is a prepping competition, ALL PREPPED OUT, where professional chefs/pro kitchen staff are asked to complete everyday kitchen tasks with speed and agility. Dicing onions, julienning carrots, separating eggs, "breaking down" chickens, and other kitchen tasks will be completed. The fastest and most accurate chef will win the trophy. (Slated for noon, Sunday, July 10)

The second event seeking competitors is NICKEL CITY SOUS CHEF, where for the first time ever, a kitchen's second in command will have the opportunity to compete in front of a live audience. Two sous will participate. Each will be expected to complete two dishes featuring a secret ingredient, before a panel of judges." (Slated for noon, Saturday, July 9)

For All Prepped Out, anyone in a professional kitchen - from dishwashers to the top dog - is eligible, Seychew said. The Sous Chef competition is for No. 2 cooks specifically.
