The Iron Event: Summer Harvest

On Monday, September 9, 2013, upwards of a dozen top chefs will be battling it out at the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery to create the best amuse bouche for guests who will then decide who has the most outstanding single bite-sized creation. The chefs competing in The Iron Event hail from restaurants ranging from Europa to The Mansion. The competition is designed to test the culinary skills (complexity of taste and overall presentation) of each preparer as they scramble to come up with a one-two punch that will capture top prize. Each guest to the event will be able to try the entire line-up of amuse bouche offerings, and will then be given an opportunity to cast a vote through ballot method.

Not only are the chefs competing for top honors, trophies and prizes, proceeds from The Iron Event go towards benefitting The ALS Association‘s patient care and assistance program, along with the caregiver respite program and research for a cure.

Chef lineup:
Nate Stockmaster from the Pan American Grille
J Lennon Lewandowski from Oliver’s
Steve Gedra from Bistro Europa
Mike A representing SEABAR
Jill Forster from Nickel City Cheese and Mercantile
Chris Daigler from Encore
Bruce Wieszala from Tabree
Matt DiCamillo from DiCamillo’s Bakery
Frank Mercado from M&T’s Executive Dining Room
Jeffrey Cooke from Osteria 166
Jennifer Boye from The Mansion

With Musical Guest: CUE THE SUN

A Chinese auction and silent auction with amazing autographed merchandise, including a guitar autographed by LED ZEPPELIN, will be presented
