The Second Annual Big Biscuit Showdown will be held Thursday, July 27 from 6-9pm at The Rickhouse in Downtown Durham. This unique food competition features thirteen teams comprised of Rise Biscuits Donuts locations and a local brewery or beverage company. Each Rise chef will prepare a special biscuit and donut with inventive toppings and fillings that will be paired with a local craft-made beverage. Last year’s menu included items such as a Braised Duck Leg Ragu, Tomato Confit and Wilted Kale filled biscuit and a Stout Chocolate-Iced, Malted Cream-Filled Donut Topped with Candied Pecans and Roasted Banana Puree. Beverages for this year include craft-made beer from breweries including Trophy and Wicked Weed as well as coffee and cocktails, all paired to accompany the flavor profile of the biscuit and donut.

The public is invited to taste, enjoy and then vote for its favorite biscuit, donut and beverage. The winners receive the coveted Big Biscuit Showdown belt. Tickets are $50 and available in advance at www.bigbiscuitshowdown.com.

All proceeds from the Big Biscuit Showdown will be donated to the Duke Cancer Institute through Give 1 For Dad, a local fundraising campaign to launch a clinical trial to test a novel approach to treat advanced prostate cancer patients. For more information, visit www.Give1ForDad.com.
