Sandwich Smash 2009

MODA is partnering up as a Sponsor with Sandwich Smash 2009 on October 4th. So get your appetites ready! We met Jeff Vogel this week to see how we could get involved. He is organizing this event as well as being the co-founder of unbreaded.com. His blog was just named "Best Philly Food Blog" by Philadelphia Magazine in the August Issue - so you know the Sandwich Smash will be stacked!

Five of Philadelphia's top restaurant professionals will perform live chef demos of their signature sandwiches. Each chef will demonstrate to the audience how to make their signature sandwiches, representing French, Italian, Israeli and American cuisines. At the conclusion of each demo, the audience will get to eat the sandwiches, five in all!

This non-competitive showcase event will be hosted by Esquire Food Editor Ryan D’Agostino, who will interview the chefs while they cook and draw out the stories behind the food.

Sandwich Smash has partnered with Philabundance, the region's largest hunger relief agency, to organize a peanut butter and jelly drive to benefit people in need throughout the Delaware Valley. Proceeds from the event will go toward purchasing jars of peanut butter and jelly to help feed the hungry. Event attendees and individuals in the broader community are also encouraged to donate peanut butter and/or jelly to Philabundance.

Stay tuned for updates about what we will be showcasing during the event! The event takes place at the Park Hyatt from 4:30 - 8PM. Tickets are limited so log on & get your tickets today!
