Pizza & Pasta Northeast, October 17-18, 2017
Atlantic City Convention Center
Why I Entered
“I’ve been told that competing is the best way to grow. Since attending Caputo Cup over the past few years, I’ve seen my peers push the limits of creativity and I hope to do the same.
“I’ll be competing this year for the first time and making Detroit-style. There is a uniqueness about Detroit-style, and it’s still making its way to the masses. Pizza doesn’t have to be conventional and it definitely doesn’t have to be round!”
The Caputo Cup Sponsored by Antimo Caputo Flour
The annual Caputo Cup pizza-making competition is being expanded this year from two to four divisions as it partners with Pizza & Pasta Northeast. Nearly 200 competitors are expected, baking their best pies and presenting them to the judges in the Traditional, Non-Traditional, Pizza Napoletana/STG and Gluten-Free divisions.
Watch the action in the Caputo Cup area on the Exhibit Hall floor, with trophies and up to $3,000 in prize money going to each of the division winners.
Northeast Pasta Showdown Sponsored by Barilla
We’ll be crowning the chefs with the best pasta dishes in the Northeast during this two-day competition. On Day 1 each of the 20 competitors will prepare their top recipe for a panel of judges, who will give them marks based on technique, presentation, and of course, taste. On Day 2 the same chefs will be asked to prepare a pasta dish from a table of common ingredients, including one primary ingredient that must be used in all entries.
The two-day combined score will determine the winner of first-place cash and a trophy, which will be presented Wednesday afternoon in the Pasta Competition Area of the Exhibit Hall.
