This Sunday afternoon at 4:30, it will be a battle of blogger (me) vs. blogger (Lisa the Waitress of Restaurant Widow) vs. radio host (Ann Fisher of WOSU’s All Sides) at the Heavy Metal Chef Challenge, a cooking competition that’s an homage to Iron Chef with Q96FM’s Joe Show playing the part of Alton Brown.
This friendly rivalry should be fun for everyone competing, and entertaining to those of you in the audience – we will have a mystery bag of ingredients to cook with (we won’t find out the ingredients until a few minutes before the competition), and we have to cook everything in a single electric skillet in a 35 minute time limit! Needless to say, there’s a chance that this could go from foodie fun to comical if I fall flat on my face – I’ve never done anything like this before, so hopefully armed with my foodie skills I will manage to reign supreme. I sure (and I’m sure the others could too) use a bunch of you in the audience to cheer us on, and I’d love to see all of you there. Tickets are free at any Kroger Marketplace, or you can buy them for $5 at the door.
If that’s not enough to convince you, a bit earlier on Sunday (2:30pm), Mary Alice and Geof of Food Network’s Ace of Cakes will be judging a cake decorating contest, and taking questions and signing autographs with audience members.
