Who will be the next Iron Chef Tucson?
Chef David Ferrara of Fire & Spice at Sheraton thinks he has what it takes to beat Chef Ryan Clark of Lodge on the Desert and become 2013 Iron Chef Tucson.
The 6th Annual Iron Chef Tucson at the Loew’s Ventana Canyon Resort on July 6th is the premiere culinary challenge of the year and you're invited to attend!
Just like the TV Show, Chef Ryan Clark and Chef David Ferrara will:
- Face off in a serious culinary battle using a surprise secret ingredient
- Commentators will give play-by-play of what the competitors are doing
- A guest panel of (3) judges sample the end results, and score based on flavor, presentation, creativity, and use of the secret ingredient
Tickets are available at two levels:
