Caramelpalooza 2013 will take place Friday, April 5 from 7 p.m. til the caramel runs out, at the Biltmore Fashion Park, the new home to Smeeks, which is partnering with Union and Chow Bella to bring you the fourth annual event.
Chefs can bring anything from traditional caramels to caramel-flavored confections (we've had everything from PB&J caramels to caramel macarons to caramel paletas!). The only rules: Each item must be individually wrapped and prepared in a commercial kitchen. And you've got to bring 350 of 'em.
More details are coming. For now, let us know if you want to sign up -- or have more questions. Email Phoenix New Times managing editor Amy Silverman: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to enter: Friday, February 15.
Just wait til you see who's signed up so far.... The competition's gonna be fierce this year. And you might need to shore up your dental work before April 5.
