A co-worker and her husband wanted to throw an Iron Chef party and they thought of me as one of the chefs! This event was very organized and a lot of fun.
Here's how it went down...
There was a list of 5 ingredients (potato, prepared dough, cheese, bacon, and rice) The day before the event we drew an ingredient (cheese!) and called the other two chefs. We had all day Saturday to shop and plan. We were to start cooking at 5:30.
My friend's kitchen is huge! So it was no problem having 3 teams working away in there. We had an hour and a half which was too much time for me but not enough for one of the other teams!
We had to plate one version of each of our 3 dishes. Each guest had a score sheet. Every dish was scored from 1-5 on taste, presentation, and originality. The host then took all the score cards and entered them into an excel spreadsheet. The winner was then announced...and then we ate more!
It was a great evening. I hope you will enjoy the pictures!
