BROOKLYN - Three Brooklyn chefs say they are excited to be nominated as finalists for the 12th annual Vendy Awards cook-off being held in September.

Since 2005, street vendors have competed in an intense cook-off between the most popular sidewalk chefs for the top prize.

Among the finalists from Brooklyn are Raindrop Cake - which dishes up unique, Japanese-inspired desserts; Big Mozz – which specializes in handmade mozzarella sticks; and Bamboo Bites – which focuses on vegan foods.

The final test will take place on Sept. 17 at Governors Island. Chefs will have to prepare the best eats for Vendy attendees and judges to be named the best street vendor in New York City.

The Vendy Awards is also a fundraiser for the Vendor Power Project promoting equal rights for all push-cart sellers.
