Food lovers quarrel

Creatives cook-off for culinary supremacy.

Get ready for the second annual Creative Chef cook-off by food photographer Edward Pond and Dave Watson, CD design at Taxi. Citing an epic bite of corn as a child as the reason he loves food so much, Pond has made this year’s theme “Show your roots,” and invites advertising creatives to cook a dish that shows off when they fell in love with food. Now with the list of finalists ready to go, the cook-off is set for Oct. 10 at 6 p.m. All contestants have to cook a dish with the (no longer secret) ingredient corn to be named the top creative cook.
