The Takedown blasted into existence in the winter of 2003 – in a little hovel somewhere in Brooklyn NYC. Everyone loves us, so the Takedown has quickly grown into an adult-sized event. The press is insane, and in it’s wake, other cooking events across the country were more recently spawned, but the Takedown will always be the first and awesomest! Self-taught cooks bring in their brilliant creations and compete for money, prizes, and self respect. In NYC, events are held all over town, with the next one coming in hot at littlefield!

The TD is NATIONWIDE now- and happening in a city near you! Austin, Houston, Chicago, New Orleans, Nashville, Boston, St. Paul, Seattle, San Francisco… and MORE!!!

But that’s not all! Takedowns are nutzos, and not necessarily chili: Bacon, Fondue, Salsa, Lamb, Curryand even Cookie Takedowns!!!! Oo! And we have several really bad ideas coming up- also not chili related.

The Takedown has received serious accolades in the press – check out the lavish attention on the press page!

Actor/filmmaker Matt Timms produces the events and MCs the night. God he’s beautiful.
