In the spirit of two wholly American pursuits — overeating and winning — comes the Takedown, a cooking competition where anything goes. - New York Times

There’s simply no other food gathering in which a community of cuisine lovers can unite to celebrate the wondrous and wild recipe discoveries by amateur chefs. -Village Voice

Matt Timms, the czar of amateur cook-offs, take-downs, and bake-offs in NYC, (inspired) a movement of down-home cooking competitions. - Phoenix New Times

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.
