First off, thanks to Food Network for ruining the name “Iron Chef”.

Now I think marketers just screw things up.

Iron Chef my ass…more like “Wafer-thin Parchment Paper Chef”

Iron Chef Sauces? WTF people!?!?!?

Because I’m pretty sure any of the Iron Chefs want to be associated with the sauces in these bottles.

“Iron Chef K”? Which one was that?

Or maybe the Fatty-Batty-Boom-Ba-Latty Snapple Chick thought, “Oh, maybe we’ll try to bottle some Asian sauces too.”

Bleh.

Don’t buy this stuff cause it makes you look stupid.

Besides, you can make this on your own.

It’s Monday – stop screwing around with the water filter in the ice machine and get back to work.

Is that helping to cool you down?

Please.

Again, great event and fundraiser for VeggieU to benefit the 10th Annual Food and Wine Celebration!

VeggieU – heaven on earth…in Milan, Ohio

So, in my humble opinion, my most favorite dish out of the 55 different food stations….California Grill!

Yep that’s right-I chose the Executive Chef from California Grill located at a Disney’s Contemporary Resort of the Walt Disney World Resort restaurants.

Chef Brian Piasecki

Hailing from the magic kingdom, Chef Brian Piasecki has been at the lead since January 2009 and is currently redesigning the California Grill to add new stuff for his guests.

Scheduled for a reopening in late summer/fall of 2013, Chef Piasecki has been hard at work enhancing his menu while you’re there to visit Mickey and Donald.

Heirloom Tomato Risotto with Basil foam and aged balsamic drizzle

Perfect use of tomato in what is otherwise a relatively heavy overpowering dish.

Now you would think the robust risotto would overwhelm the delicate heirloom tomato…nope.

Now you would also think the aged balsamic would completely lead. Not. At. All.

Again-the heirloom tomato lead the way.

Risotto perfectly prepared, for a large crowd for mini servings over a 4-5 hour duration period, much kudos.

Special thanks to International Veggie Champion Farmer Lee Jones and crew – these tomatoes were prefect and Chef Piasecki popped  a fresh one for us to compare/contrast. Farm to table indeed!

I don’t think I had any basil foam, but I am pretty sure we got some chopped basil.

Either way, just delicious.

Just a few thoughts on this rainy Saturday morning.

Love Chef Lee Anne Wong.

Keeping it street, she heckled the Cheftestants on stage at this weekend’s 2012 VeggieU food and Wine Celebration event at The Chef’s Garden.

Show me what you got!

Chef Madison Cowan (@Madisons_Ave) doesn’t even know what to say

But no shame cause she rides in the back of a golf cart.

Check out Chef Lee Anne Wong’s preferred ride

I love Chefs…hilarious.
