To get people jazzed over the first summertime restaurant week (July 16-27), dineLA is holding a “Pro-Am Celebrity Cookoff” this Wednesday morning that will pit two home chefs with one of two celebrity chef partners. One winner will find themselves teaming up with Border Grill and Street’s Susan Feniger, the other with Cochon 555-winning Ben Ford of Ford’s Filling Station to go head-to-head. The sweepstakes ends at 12:00 P.M. today over on Facebook, where winners will be picked for the Chopped-style cook-off, which takes place at 10:30 A.M. on July 11 at The Four Seasons Beverly Hills on Doheny. Entries accepted over on dineLA’s Facebook for two more hours.
