EPX is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Italian Red Gravy Cook-Off. Taking place Sunday, April 22, 2018, from 4-6pm at Ss. Neumann and Goretti High School, this event is a chance for residents to celebrate the heritage and traditions of the neighborhood.
The entry form is now open for any amature chefs looking to showcase their best Sunday Gravy in this blind-tasting event. With $400 in prizes for Judges’ Choice and Crowd Favorite, this is an exciting opportunity to show off your culinary skills. Competitors will need to prepare approximately 2 gallons of homemade sauce, vegetarian, seafood, red meat, or other variety. The East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association will provide pre-cooked pasta in chafing dishes on the day of the event. All red gravy submissions will be served in a 4 oz. tasting cup to attendees and judges.
To compete fill out this form. Contestants receive two complimentary tickets to the event
If you’re more of an eater than a cook, this is also an event for you. Come to the event to enjoy the different gravies over macaroni (or as some say, “pasta”), fresh salads, breads, and homemade desserts. A complimentary Buckingham Valley Wine tasting will be provided by Vin Cafe (ages 21+) with additional glasses available for purchase. Buy your ticket today
All proceeds benefit the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association.
