SAN FRANCISCO, June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chefs Feed, the leading food-related network and mission-driven media platform, is launching a contest with Uber–rolling out first in Toronto, Washington DC, Seattle and New York City–that will treat winners and their guests to the ultimate food lover's experience. On Friday, June 6, 2014, winners will be notified and taken on a behind the scenes culinary tour with one of their city's top chefs in an Uber black car, bringing the Chefs Feed experience to life.
Uber, the app that connects you with a driver at the tap of a button is teaming up with Chefs Feed, the app that connects you to the best chefs and their dish recommendations. Both companies have built technology that revolutionizes their respective industries, transportation and food, making a partnership between the two a natural fit.
"Chefs Feed and Uber are giving me the opportunity to meet new people who are as passionate about food and fun as I am," said Joey Campanaro, Chef at The Little Owl in New York City. "I've been a fan of Chefs Feed from the beginning. They provide an organic and honest way for me to share the food that I love. I'm excited that they are teaming up with Uber for this contest. Even in a city with a lot of transportation options, Uber is convenient, fast and adds a little luxury to what would otherwise just be a cab ride. For the winner, I have a big night planned, including a tasty menu of some of the best food in New York, unique libations and even a little karaoke, I can't wait."
Participating chefs include Rob Gentile (Buca, Bar Buca in Toronto), Mike Isabella (Graffiato, Kapnos in Washington DC), Jason Stratton (Cascina Spinasse, Artusi, Aragona in Seattle) and Joey Campanaro (The Little Owl, Market Table, The Clam in NYC).
"We are delighted to partner with Uber in major cities in North America," said Rich Maggiotto, Chefs Feed CEO. "Our mission at Chefs Feed has been to change the way restaurants and modern diners interact with each other. Uber is doing the same for transportation by seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through mobile apps. It's a perfect fit, as we both speak to the appetites of urban, mobile-savvy audiences who are out and about on the town."
The contest kicks off today, June 2, and winners will be selected this Thursday, June 5 for a night out with the chef on Friday, June 6.
