2020 Pensacola EggFest
The EggFest team is re-imagining its event for 2020. The annual Pensacola foodie event, normally held at Pensacola Blue Wahoos Stadium, raises money for local charities while serving up some of the best barbeque in the South. This year will focus on all of the yummy and unique recipes celebrity chefs and cook teams have shared over the years in a scaled-down format that lets barbeque lovers get their hands on the actual recipes.
“Pensacola EggFest has raised more than $360,000 for local charities like childhood cancer and systemic hunger and has served more than 20,000 meals to those in need,” said Lisa Long, EggFest co-chair. “We have to keep that going — it’s our mission — and the community is depending on it. EggFest will not only survive, but thrive in 2020.”
Today, the charity is launching the pre-sale of Good Food, a collection of stories and recipes from EggFest Award-Winning Pitmasters from across the U.S. That will be followed by a Launch Party where past celebrity chefs and judges will be on hand to sign the Good Food recipe books and dole out bites of their favorite dishes cooked on a Big Green Egg.
“This really is the heart of EggFest,” said co-chair, Jerold Hall. “Good Food is all about harnessing the love of barbeque and camaraderie of cooking to raise money for well-deserving charities. This recipe book will take Pensacola EggFest to the next level, putting the much sought-after recipes right into the hands of barbeque foodies from all over the Pensacola area. And there will be plenty to eat, too!”
Those interested in getting in on the pre-sale of Good Food, the Pensacola EggFest Recipe Book should go to www.PensacolaEggfest.com and watch for the launch. Details to follow on the Celebrity Chef Launch Party date and location. All recommended precautionary health measures will be taken.
