Cooking competitions, like demolition derbies, feature awe-inspiring pyrotechnics, heat-resistant uniforms, and dozens and dozens of souped-up beaters. Savor the taste of victory with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to the Chef Knockout event at the Albuquerque Convention Center at noon on Sunday, June 5 (a $30 value), hosted by Albuquerque The Magazine.

Headed into round four this year, Chef Knockout pits eight restaurants against each other in head-to-head competition to impress audiences and a judges’ panel with innovative techniques and feats of flavor. Enter the arena and behold the slow-braised aroma of battle as the ABQ Brew Pub goes up against tongue-tingling 2010 title defender The Grove Cafe & Market in a 40-minute whirlwind of epicurean competition. Between bouts of culinary prowess, spectators can sample the savory bites and sweet delights of more than 40 local restaurants, or organize a contest to see how many pocket-stashed toothpicks it takes to learn a painful lesson about wearable storage limitations.

Proceeds from admission help support The Storehouse, one of New Mexico’s largest food pantries.

Albuquerque The Magazine

Albuquerque The Magazine packs its monthly glossy with colorful displays of city happenings as well as features, shopping tips, and interviews with local notables. Peruse the culture section for the scoop on arts events, plan cuisine outings with the restaurant guide, or browse the pet section to learn about doggie wedding venues. The photo-filled ode to New Mexico's largest city distinguishes itself with its community involvement, its insider coverage of local goings-on, and its aesthetic contribution to mousy coffee tables.
