For nine years, The Duckathlon has tested the mettle of our chef clients, challenging them with a culinary obstacle course unlike any other.
Good news! The Duckathlon is – FOR THE FIRST TIME – open to the public. Now you can run the challenge course and drink deeply from the cup of victory. New York City’s ultimate food competition wants you!
The team from Felix had a guest member: Elyse Pasqual, who blogs at foodieinternational.com
How well do you know a pig’s anatomy? How many crêpes can you flip in one minutes? Can you handle the heat? Better start training now!
The Duckathlon will take place in NYC on June 14, 2014.
