Proving Des Moines is NOT boring

Culinary Fight Night comes to DSM

cfn-flyer1Mark your calendars and vote on the mystery ingredient for the Iron Chef style show-down on January 11, 2015. Executive Chef Dominic Iannarelli of Splash & Jethro’s will be taking on Executive Chef of Catering DSM Mike Holman in a Culinary Fight Night.

Vote HERE to help choose the mystery ingredients the chefs will have to incorporate into the 3-course meal. Options include Rice Krispies, Spam, sardines, dill pickles and more. Personally I’m voting for jelly beans because those seem to trip up contestants on Chopped all the time. However, root beer is currently on top and I wouldn’t mind that either. The top 3 ingredients will be included in the dishes.

A celebrity panel including Miss Iowa 2014 and a cast member from a VH1 reality series will judge the dishes on taste, presentation and creativity. All guests will get dishes as well (that’s a 6 course meal!)

The winner of the competition will get a CFN belt, and a cash prize, half of which will be donated to their charity of choice.
