The Gates Preserve Honors B.I.G.'s Legacy With 'Stay Hungry' Culinary Competition
Syreeta Gates, founder and pilot of The Gates Preserve experience, will once again fuse food, fellowship and hip-hop for the third annual culinary competition, Stay Hungry.
Highlighting the creative ingenuity of the young people, Stay Hungry brings high school culinary artists into the fold to demonstrate their love for hip-hop culture by preparing dishes that coincide with selected hip-hop lyrics.
The choice subject for this competition is the late, great black Frank White. Better known around the borough as The Notorious B.I.G., Stay Hungry competitors will link with chef coaches to serve the freshest and tastiest dished to special guest judges such as Groovey Lew (celebrity stylist), Niko Brim (budding producer), Easy Mo Bee (legendary producer), Michael Cole (Mikey Likes It founder) and Peter J. Kim (Museum of Food and Drink executive director).
Stay Hungry will award our culinary culture changers with the first, “Chef Curry Scholarship,” to rising young chefs. The distinction is in honor of Chef Terrell Curry. Stay Hungry will also feature performances from artists like JP Reynolds and Niko Brim.
Since hip-hop’s inception, the phrase, “stay hungry,” and other food tie-ins have been used as a metaphor. Whether it is getting that fetti (cash) or squashing beef (grudges) — The Gates Preserve has found a unique way to bridge the hip-hop world with the culinary arts for a tasty, annual experience.
If you want to partake in the occasion, please RSVP at StayHungry.splashthat.com.
