Tickets are $225 for the two seatings, or $100 for access just to the open bar and canapes. Tickets can be bought online. [EaterWire]

SOHO — Back Forty West has rescheduled its annual Calçotada, a Catalan celebration of spring, to May 11. The event, which centers on eating grilled overwintered leeks with romesco sauce, was supposed to take place this weekend, but the leeks have taken longer than expected to grow to full size. Besides leeks there will also be grilled lamb chops, sausages, white beans, and porrons of rosé. Tickets are $113 and can be bought online. [EaterWire]

FOOD TV — Here's a sneak peek of Spike TV's upcoming cooking competition, Frankenfood, which features Josh Capon judging alongside Philly restaurateur/actor Tony Luke, Jr.. In it contestants present "unexpected food concoctions" like a breakfast sandwich made with oatmeal raisin cookies, and chocolate chicken (which sounds familiar). [~EN~]
