Iron Chef Events Galore!

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Well maybe "galore" is a bit of hyperbole, but we do have two local Iron Chef-ish tidbits to talk about today.

The first is the Local Foods Iron Chef event happening this Saturday, May 5. Feast your eyes on this description:

Six chef teams will prepare gourmet dishes featuring local ingredients from partnering local farms and markets — including a special secret ingredient that we’ve just revealed to teams the week before the event. The lucky tasters (you!) will sample each dish and vote on your favorite to crown the winner of 2012 Local Foods Iron Chef.

Each chef team will be tasked with a specific variety of cooking (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and meat-featuring) and we've encouraged them to make their delectables desirable to different palates — so there will be something for everyone!

Soak up a Tucson sunset while you listen to local band Hey Buckos and sample a selection of locally crafted beer, Arizona wine, and other drinks. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, the food and live entertainment for this event will take on a Mexican flair.

The second thing you should know about is that Iron Chef Tucson has officially begun accepting applications for this year's event. So, if you think you can beat Ryan Clark of Lodge on the Desert - a young man who seems to whip ass on just about any competitor he comes across - go ahead and fill out the application here.
