Iron Chef

9 05 2007

The Endless Feast took on a new twist as my friends Jason and Val hosted an Iron Chef party this Saturday. As Jason writes, we battled over the secret ingredient lemon/lime. The competition was stiff…so many tasty dishes – seafood ceviche, tuna and chipotle, lemon custard ice cream, chicken with deep fried okra among others. But at the end of the day, the dried limes ruled!!

 Yes, thanks to Maziyar and his dried limes and helpful tips, I made a Persian dish known as Khoresht-e Ghormeh Sabzi aka lamb and herb stew. Accompanied with my sourdough country white bread and a specialty fig bread, it was a winner!

Thank you to Jason for graciously allowing me to “dethrone” him as the Iron Chef on his birthday! I look forward to the next “competition.” Here is my new trophy — a genuine Iron Chef cup coaster. We discussed creating some kind of traveling trophy that gets passed from iron chef to iron chef each time. Let me know if you have any ideas on how to do that!
