EVER suffered through a jam-packed summer music festival, battling sunburn, sweat, warm beer and, perhaps worst of all, soggy hot dogs? Well, suffer no more: Chow Town is coming to the 2013 Big Day Out (music festival, ensuring decent grub is available among the water stands and portaloos. National ambassadors for Chow Town, Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz of Bodega and Porteno in Sydney, have assembled chefs from each city to feed the tired and hungry, and possibly anaesthetised, with easy-to-manage, hand-held dishes. Melbourne's Chow Town at the BDO in January has already attracted Andrew McConnell from Golden Fields in St Kilda; Huxtaburger's Daniel Wilson; Karen Batson of Cookie; Jesse Gerner from Anada and St Ali North; Chris Hamburger from St Ali North; and Raph Rashid from Beatbox Kitchen and Taco Truck.
