Brownsboro Hardware & Paint hosts Annual EGGfest Aug. 5 & 6

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Brownsboro Hardware & Paint is hosting the 8th Annual Kentuckiana EGGFest and Peach Truck.  Owner Jim Lehrer says EGGfest is always a hit with grilling fanatics around the area wanting to learn about the Big Green Eggs.

Volare Ristorante executive Chef Josh Moore is one of the chefs competing in the "Chopped" style competition at EGGfest.  He uses one of the Big Green Eggs at his restaurant, so he's well prepared to battle it out.

The Peach Truck returns!

The Pearson Peach truck returns to Brownsboro Hardware &  Paint stores on Saturday, July 23rd. Freestone peaches will be available at Brownsboro Hardware's Prospect location from 8am until 10am and at the Louisville store from 11am until 1pm.
Each 25 pound box sells for $39.

The peaches come Pearson Farm in Georgia and have a reputation for being the sweetest and juiciest peaches in the country.

8th Annual Kentuckiana Eggfest August 5th and 6th
 
The event features our CHOPPED! Big Green Egg Style! Competition Friday night from 7pm - 9pm. Four professional chefs will have 90 minutes to prepare an appetizer, main dish and dessert, all cooked on The Big Green Egg!  The catch is they will not know the ingredients until they open their basket and the timer starts! Chef Josh Moore from Volare Italian Restaurant; Chef Anoosh Shariat - Anoosh Bistro & Noosh Nosh; and Chef Shawn Ward - Ward 426 are all scheduled to appear.

In addition, a wide variety of world-famous dishes will be prepared by the award-winning team of chefs from our local Louisville Sysco.

Eggfest gets started at 9 a.m. Saturday and runs until 3 p.m.. There will be more than 100 Big Green Eggs cooking delicious food all day! Plus, beef and pork cooking competitions for registered chefs competing for our coveted trophies.

All the Big Green Eggs used for this event are available for pre-purchase at special prices and available for pickup beginning on Sunday, August 7th. Contact Brownsboro Hardware if you'd like to pre-purchase one of these amazing grills at an amazing price.

Secrets of Louisville Chefs will be producing a 30 minute TV episode covering both the Friday night and Saturday EGGFest events.

Proceeds from this two-day festival benefit A Recipe to End Hunger and Blessings in a Backpack. Last year's celebration raised over $16,000 for these charities.

Free shuttle parking is available at Christ United Methodist Church, 4614 Brownsboro Road.
