Perhaps you've seen a cooking competition on The Food Network called Iron Chef. I must confess that I've only seen bits and pieces of the program while grazing with my remote. These types of competitions can be quite fun if you're watching them live. And you have a chance to do so here in Albuquerque. This is the fifth year that Chef Knockout will be held in Albuquerque. (The above video is from Round 3 in 2010)
The event, sponsored by Albuquerque The Magazine and a handful of other sponsors will be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center on Sunday, June 3, Noon to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are only $25. By now you probably know that this competition is a benefit for The Storehouse, New Mexico’s largest food pantry which has been providing needy Albuquerqueans with food and clothing since 1969.
A day of fun and food, unlike any event Albuquerque has ever seen! Last year eight restaurants met the challenge in this “Iron Chef-style” competition, and this year will be even bigger with more food, more drinks and more fun! The Main Event features 8 restaurants in four head-to-head cooking challenges. Winners from last year will return to defend their crown in Chef Knockout 2012 .
