Vegan Chef Challenge
(tentative) August or September
(tentative) Mercer County, NJ

NJveg is joining with Vegan in NJ to create the first Vegan Chef Challenge in NJ!  The Vegan Chef Challenge is a month-long event showcasing new vegan menu items created by chefs at local restaurants.  Typically, ten to thirty restaurants take part and the dining public is encouraged to vote for their favorite dishes.  The majority of restaurants keep at least one popular vegan item on their regular menu after the challenge concludes.

This event will require months of planning, including signing up restaurants and publicity.  If you’re interested in joining our Vegan Chef Challenge team, please contact us at NJveg.org@gmail.com or 609-557-7077 (text preferred).
