August 25, 2012 | The Taste of Provincetown

Tiffani Faison knows the merciless time crunch of the QuickFire challenge all too well. The chef behind Fenway BBQ spot Sweet Cheeks was a finalist on the first Top Chef season, came back for extra helpings in two Top Chef specials, and threw her toque in the ring for last year’s Top Chef: All-Stars. That’s a whole lotta QuickFires. But at last, revenge! She’s turning the tables at The Taste of Provincetown, this Saturday’s feast and fundraiser for LGBT advocacy nonprofit MassEquality. Faison will put three P-town chefs through their paces, refereeing a QuickFire challenge while guests nibble hors d’oeuvres and amuse-bouches from 30 Cape restaurants, sip wines and cocktails, and peruse a silent auction. The showdown starts at 6 p.m. at Provincetown Town Hall (260 Commercial Street, Provincetown), and tickets ($125) are available here. Sounds like a perfect excuse to squeeze in one last Cape escape.
