What would you do with figs, fennel, and beef? Or chicken, bell peppers, and a spice you've never heard of? How about shrimp, berries, and rice? Well, if you were Hans O, Lacey M, Scott T, Karen M, Rebecca M, Doug Y, and Mary Jo S you'd cook up delicious plates for the rest of your fellow yelpers to taste at Denver Yelp's latest Elite Event - The Iron Yelper at Cook Street School of Fine Cooking!
On Friday night Denver elites flooded Cook Street for beer, wine, the tastiest antipasto trays we've seen, and a friendly challenge between 3 teams. While Hans O and Lacey M walked away the champions with their chicken paella and skewers in peanut sauce it was a close race to the win. Rebecca M, Mary Jo S, and Doug Y received plenty of votes thanks to their Asian inspired shrimp dish - word at the school was they made the best cauliflower around and yelpers couldn't have agreed more. And the team of Scott T and Karen M rounded out the tastings with the best use of difficult ingredients, making a mouth watering flank steak sided by blue cheese and figs. Yum!
At the end of the tasting several of our lucky yelpers walked away with tickets to see The Dinner Detective or gift certificate to return to Cook Street for their own lessons in the kitchen. Of course, it isn't a party unless there is evidence so check out the photos taken by Carl Johnson of Mountain Hi Photography here. And don't forget to read what everyone is saying about the night here.
Until next time, SYOY!
