It’s In-the-Books: International StreetFood Challenge
Many moons ago when I was a child, I’d pull out a big catalog and a marker to circle the items I had hoped that Santa would bring me. Not only was this an excellent way to keep me quiet and a way for my parents to plan their shopping excursions, but it built up the holiday hype for me. I’m pretty sure I had all 3,872 items memorized and when we’d rip into the presents on Christmas morning, I always ended up with my top tiered options.
Fast forward a LOT of years (no way I’m telling you how many) and I had the same reaction when I went to Wilmington’s International Street Food Challenge held at the Battleship USS North Carolina on August 26th. Out of about a bazillion talented chefs in the Wilmington area, six heavy hitters showcased their dishes and it was a food lover’s dream.
Set up in a semi-circle of tents, these chefs displayed their dishes to be sampled not only by the judges, but ravenous foodies from all around our area.
