Iron Chef Longueuil: Chef Evelyne VS Chef Stef

I am in a bit of a blogging blah…or end of winter blues. So things are quiet…even if I have a backlog of posts to do. But today I have a little picture essay post from an event that goes back quite a bit actually…Stef and I were just friends still at that time. So anyways we planned a day of shopping and cooking at his place afterward. But he had a trick up his sleeve for me.

He said we were doing a spin-off dinner on Iron Chef America. He had purchased plenty of food ahead and each service had a main ingredient. So it was not a meal from a secret ingredient but each service was a non-secret challenge ingredient. No written recipes to be consulted. So I have no recipes to share….just pictures and the notes we took that night.

1st service: soup and lobster claws

Chef Evelyne: Sea Route to the Land of Silk

Coconut base soup with curry paste and lobster stock served with pan fried quinoa flour breaded lobster claws and quinoa pancake.

Yes there is only one version of the 3rd service. Honestly after each eating 2 soups and 2 dishes of pork tenderloin we hardly had room for the beef. This was a challenge but a really fun one. Do it with friends or your loved one, it really makes for a fun night and let’s everyone shine in their own way in the kitchen. Salud!

Chef Stef: Pomegranate and Raspberry vodka shooter
