Wow!!!What an experience Iron Chef America was. I enjoyed watching the show on Sunday night with my family and neighbors. I couldn’t have been happier with the way that my team looked and performed (except for the outcome). Losing was certainly not the outcome that we had hoped for, but we went there excited, prepared and with a mission…we accomplished all that we wanted to, cooked the food the way we wanted to, presented it the way that we wanted to and perfomed in front of the cameras with professionalism and comraderie…even cracked a few jokes.
The quality of the dishes that we created came through on the plates…I thought that our dishes looked fun, exciting, inovative and yummy! Even though judge 3 was a little one sided towards the Iron Chef …our food was exactly how we had envisioned it…colorful, tasty and Southern influenced. The Okra and Bacon Crusted Oyster was fantasic as was the Okra and Country Ham Spoonbread. And with respect to the judges, our Okra and Fig Cobbler was very good…and tackled Okra head on…not hidden in a puree. But, Cat won and she was a great Iron Chef…I was just priveleged to be asked to participate.
Thanks to everyone who watched and especially those who sent messages of encouragement before and support afterwards. I am truly blessed to have support of friends and family behind me in all that I do.
Until next time…
GOOD FOOD… GOODFRIENDS… GOOD TIMES!!!
