Forster joins Nickel City Chef 2015 season

The 2015 season of Nickel City Chef adds Edward Forster of Buffalo Proper as the fifth member of the "home team." Those chefs will compete against other up-and-coming culinary talents in five live hour-long cooking battles this spring.

Forster's cooking helped put Buffalo Proper on my list of best new restaurants of 2014.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. They usually sell out in hours.

Here's the link to buy tickets.
