The Navy Food Management Team from Puget Sound sponsored the second annual Iron Chef Competition at Naval Base Kitsap - Bremerton's galley, the Evergreen Inn.
This version of the Food Network's popular "Iron Chef" television show featured six, three-person teams from local bases, submarines and ships. Each team had to prepare two main dishes, an appetizer, and a dessert using Nestle chocolate chips, the main sponsor of the event.
The teams had to use the secret ingredients which included New York strip steak, sea scallops and whole chickens, and a starch and a vegetable of their choice.
USS Nevada (SSBN 733) Blue crew culinary specialists took home the honors as Iron Chef champions. This was the second time a submarine team has won the event.
This year the judging was provided by former Seattle Mariner's third baseman Edgar Martinez, local comedian Cris Larsen, Nestle Chef Ron Coneybeer, and Commanding Officer Capt. G. Lindsay Perkins.
