So why are we telling you about the event? Three reasons. First, SFoodie's own Tamara Palmer is one of the esteemed judges (hint: we hear she likes bacon). Second, we admire Food Wars' puns: The event starts, in wording on its Web site, "at 1 p.m. sharp (cheddar) and runs till (amook) 4 p.m."
And third, there's always next time -- follow SF Food Wars on Twitter and Facebook to learn about future wars. Jeannie Choe, who self-describes as SF Food Wars' gatekeeper, told us they're definitely planning more Battle Royales, and said she was delighted and overwhelmed by the instantaneous response. "I was afraid nobody would sign up," she said.
The next war will be announced at the mac 'n' cheese event. But we hear it'll be suh-weet!
