For those of you wondering about the Iron Chef Eugene 2015 competition, check out my post about the battle in Heat 2 here and see my photo album on Facebook. Chefs Mark and Tiffany from Party Downtown won Heat 2, and move on to the Final Heat with Chefs Brendan and Mikey of Belly.
I took the following text from the program listed on Brown Paper tickets. (Note: Things may change! I understand, for example, that our former Iron Chef Oregon Jeff Strom won’t be available to cook the menu, but the meal we had that the LCC students prepared was wonderful, so I don’t think you’ll be missing out too much.)
For the Final Heat, Guests will enjoy a four course meal (see menu below), prepared by students from Lane’s Culinary program along side of Chef Adam and Chef Tim Hill, paired with wine from Oregon Wine Lab, while they watch Mark & Tiffany from Party Downtown vs. Brendan & Mikey from Belly. Due to the nature of the event, dietary restrictions cannot be accommodated.
