Events | Come join us for the ultimate Food Truck Challenge on June 9th!

If you’re like me, you love a good cooking show and a friendly competition. There’s nothing quite as thrilling to me as watching chefs use their skills to be name the best of X competition. It’s why when I found out that Uncle Ben’s was hosting the ultimate Food Truck competition at Yonge-Dundas Square using their NEW UNCLE BEN’S® Rice & Grains product, I knew I had to be there to see it happen! Come and see the details and where you can find me on June 9th from 5-9pm!

“Visitors at each event will get to try each dish and vote for their favourite, helping choose the winning recipe that will travel across the country this summer on the Official UNCLE BEN’S® Rice & Grains Food Truck! Visitors will also go home with copies of the recipes so they can try them at home.” And who is participating you ask? Toronto favourites Buster’s Sea Cove, Fidel Gastro’s and The Food Dudes face off and YOU vote for your favourite!

As mentioned, I’ll be live on location on the 9th to watch the culinary battle of wits take place using the delicious new UNCLE BEN’S® Rice & Grains product to see who takes home the grand prize and to also get inspired for some delicious recipes of my own at home. Being that Julio is Latino, it’s important for me to ensure he gets his daily dose of rice since it is one of his favourite things to eat. Why not ensure that I’m also keeping him healthy in the process? 

Make sure to come down to see and taste the competition with me and join in on the excitement!
