Photo Contest: Complimentary Cooking Demo Seat Up For Grabs

Zapien’s Salsa Grill & Taqueria is running its first-ever social media photo contest, now through Sunday, October 11, at 8 p.m.

The contest encourages Salsa Grill diners to take photos of their experience in the restaurant or on the go – be creative — and post to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #SalsaGrillin in the caption for a chance to win a free entry to one of Chef Marco Zapien’s upcoming interactive cooking demonstrations. Entries must also tag The Salsa Grill in their post; multiple entries across multiple social media platforms will not be considered.

Chef Zapien and staff will choose two winning photos to be announced Monday, October 12. Winners can redeem their complimentary seat at either the Oktoberfest or holiday demo.

The last cooking class — the annual Hatch Chile show – attracted 60 class participants who were able to learn eight Hatch Chile recipes, including soup, salad main entrees and dessert.

Class entry includes a full list of recipes demonstrated by Chef MZ over two-hours from prep to cook time, all-you-can eat of each item demonstrated, raffle prizes and a 2 for 1 card to enjoy regular dining at the restaurant.

In 2010, Chef Zapien began hosting cooking demos and featuring items off his menu. As the popularity grew, people requested other items such as Ribs, Turkey during the holidays and chili beans.

The Oktoberfest cooking demo is scheduled for Wednesday, October 14 at 6 p.m.
