It's time to begin ramping up for one of the best events of the year: The Friends of The FCI Hot Dog Competition. It's pretty exciting! Watch last year's student eating competition below.
The event also includes an employee eating competition sponsored by Sabrett, a beverage competition (to go with a hot dog, of course!), and a condiment competition judged by top NYC chefs. All money raised from the events goes to help promising students in financial distress. It's fun to have fun, but fun is sweetened even more when it is coupled with a good cause. So as far as we are concerned, this event is a plus plus.
Over the next two weeks, three fantastic culinary students (Melissa McAllister, Grace Ports, and Saira Malhotra) will be covering this year's competitions—bringing you the day-of scoop, interviews with the judges and the contestants, and so much more!
