Think you have what it takes to be a celebrity food judge: The looks, the style, the palate, snappy food repartee and the ability to drink lots of wine while appearing coherent?
If so, you could be a celebrity judge at Rootstock 2011, a celebration of wine, music and mobile cuisine. Hailed as Santa Rosa’s Great Gastronomic Wine, Street Food and Music Festival, the July 16 event features 20 wineries, a lineup of kicking’ bands and, well, the real stars of our show — street food vendors including Mateo Granados, Bay Laurel Culinary, SF’s Le Truc, Street Eatz, Dim Sum Charlie’s and Barbecue Smokehouse Bistro and Nick’s Cove with BBQ Oysters.
We’ll taste and taste and taste until we can taste no more and announce winners for Best Use of Meat, Best Fried Dish, Most Unique Dish, Best Sweet Treat, Best Use of Local Products, Best Truck Stop (atmosphere around the vendor) and the Grand Super Awesome Award for best dish overall.
Want to be a part of the action? Tell me why I should pick you in the comments below. Commenter longenvity (ie: I’ve seen your name before), willingness to dress the part, food knowledge and general “fun-ness” get my attention. Full rules here.
You’ll get two tickets to the event, and join the VIP judging panel, in addition to enjoying a few minutes of local celebrityness.
