Iron Fork contest--we have a winner!
Yesterday we gave Hot Dish readers a chance to win two free tickets to tonight's Iron Fork chef competition by telling us, in five words or less, why they deserve to go.
Our winner is Jennifer Lesch for her touching and slightly desperate entry: NEW MOM NEED DATE NIGHT.
Jennifer and a guest will be taking a mental-health break tonight at Iron Fork--and so should you. At this year's competition, six of the Twin Cities' top chefs--including stars from Piccolo, Chef Shack, and Barbette--will bring their best cooking game to a lighthearted competition loosely based on the Food Network's Iron Chef. Guests can also sample the signature dishes of more than 20 top restaurants--including Barbette, Sea Salt Eatery, French Meadow, El Burrito Mercado, and Surdyk's Liquor & Cheese Shop.
The event is tonight (Thursday) at International Market Square from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $45 at the door, or $50 for the VIP treatment. Proceeds will benefit Second Harvest Heartland. For more information, click here.
