Cast Iron Chef Challenge for Hurricane Katrina Victims

Over the weekend, Dave Herzog posted news of the (Cast) Iron Chef Challenge for Hurricane Katrina victims next month in Reno, Nevada on Saturday, October 15, 2005.

Here’s what I know about the cookoff and Dutch oven gathering:

When: Saturday, October 15, 2005. The cook’s meeting starts at 9 a.m. promptly. The secret ingredient will be handed out at 9:15 a.m. Judging times and times for the DOG will be determined soon.

Where: Reno, Nevada. The exact location will be announced soon.

What: An Iron Chef style cookoff, complete with a box that will contain a secret ingredient. Each and every team will be given a box with the secret ingredient. Each team will make as many dishes as they can based upon the secret ingredient in their Dutch ovens. Teams may bring their own pantry stocks for the competition, but may not leave the cookoff to purchase ingredients once the boxes are handed out and the competition begins.

Deadline & Entry Fee: An entry fee of $25 applies for each team. Teams are limited to three members. The public may participate in the Dutch oven gathering for free. They are asking that the public pay a $5 fee to taste the cookoff dishes.

Dave will be cooking the 900 biscuits in a 22-inch MACA Dutch oven with tons of country gravy to compliment! Come and join us in Reno for great prizes, better food and help support a great cause. Dave is working of celebrity judges for the event.

Dave will provide updates as more information becomes available. For additional information, email Dave Herzog at Cookoff packets should be available by next Friday, September 16, 2005.
