Iron Chef-testant Jason Dady shows off his grilling skills.
The third annual Titans of Tailgate will roll into San Antonio’s Sunken Garden Theater next month, pitting local chefs against each other in a grilling battle that raises money for local high school culinary programs.
The Feb. 5 event is a partnership between restaurant-focused nonprofit Culinaria and San Antonio chef Jason Dady, a contestant on Food Network's Iron Chef America
and owner of eateries including Range, The Bin, Tre Trettoria and Two Bros. BBQ Market.
Attendees can swig beer, wine and spirits while sampling food from culinarians battling to see who takes home the Titan of the Tailgate title. Past competitors include Dady himself, Stephanie Izard of Cabra in Chicago, Iron Chef Showdown
champ David Bancroft of Acre Restaurant in Alabama, James Beard Award winner Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa in Boston and Leo Davila of San Antonio’s Catch the Wave and Stixs + Stone.
