Aloha!

We’re pleased to announce the first ever Forbidden Island Tropical Appetizer Cookoff! Bring your finest exotic tidbits to Forbidden Island on Sunday August 12th and prepare to dazzle the judges with your culinary delights. We’ll have great prizes, drink specials, and it’s all a fundraiser for Alameda Meals on Wheels! Here’s how it works:

To enter your appetizer in the competition:

There are no rules to the appetizers, other than they must be “tropically” themed. You may choose to do something contemporary, or “retro”. Each person should prepare 45 individual (bite-size) pieces, and bring napkins or small plates if needed. There is no preparation space at FI, or power, but you are welcome to bring a chafing dish or portable hotplate/propane burner if needed. You should also bring a card table for your display. A good display and presentation will impress the judges! Each judge will have a sheet with your name and the name of the appetizer on it for scoring. Top three winners will be awarded fabulous prizes! There are no subcategories so feel free to use any ingredients including meats and seafood, although vegetarian entries are encouraged.

TO ENTER THE COMPETITION: Send your name, contact information, and recipe (name and ingredients, exact recipe not required) to (email disabled) **Please send all questions to that address as well.**

TO JUDGE (only judges will be tasting):

Tickets ($15) for judging will be on sale at the door at 3pm. Tickets will be limited so we suggest that you arrive early. You’ll get a wristband and a score sheet which will entitle you to one of each of the appetizers. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to Alameda Meals on Wheels.

***Grand Prize: A Cruzan Beach Cruiser Bicycle, compliments of Cruzan Rum!!!***



Tasty fun in the sun for a good cause! Plus booze. Win Win!

Dean stole my idea. Back to the ironing board for me.

Hmmm, fifteen Chicken Tenders, half a dozen orders of Sweet Potato Fries, one tub of Thousand Island Dressing, some grated coconut. Third Place, easy!

I'd like to thank the judges,
Chef Boy-R-midnite-E....Bam!

I have 2 appetizers but I don't have the time.

The cabana / slave boys want to be judges and not enter mine appetizers.

Maybe I can get my sister to enter.....
