Chef Johnny Hernandez and H-E-B Central Market’s Dya Campos will host this Iron Chef-style competition between local and visiting chefs. For this inaugural event, which partners the New World Wine and Food Festival with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Pearl Brewery, paella is the name of the game. While guests enjoy sangria and tapas, more than 40 chefs, including Jason Dady, Bruce Auden, Andrew Weissman, Waldy Malouf, and Peter Holt will test their skills in “Battle Paella,” turning Pearl’s lawn into Kitchen Stadium. The tickets aren’t cheap, but consider this: you might spend just as much going to brunch. $40 in advance at ciacocinadelasamericas.com, $50 at the event, ticket price includes food, wine, and entertainment, 11am-4pm, Pearl Brewery, 200 E.
