Iron Chef 2014

Four Local Chefs

Two Dishes

Five Secret Ingredients

Thirty Minutes

Who Will Win?

This years Iron Chef is back with added twists and turns. The event has changed location, we are heading to the beach and Fins, at Sharky's on the Pier.

In this spirit of change we have added some elements from chopped. Each chef will receive a basket containing five ingredients. All of these ingredients must be used in 

some combination in the two courses, appetizer or entree.

The judging has changed as well. This year three judges will be pulled from the audience plus we have have a special guest judge:

Megan McDonald, Web editor at Gulfshore Media, has a special interest in food and drink. An accomplished baker (two of her cakes raised $1,700 at a recent charity fundraiser), she also produces Sarasota Magazine’s regular “Sarasota’s Best” food competitions, and has judged categories ranging from “Best Tropical Cocktail” to “Best Doughnuts” and “Best Burgers.”

Four chefs step into the ring... one chef emerges victorious.

Tickets available at Blu' Island Bistro, Cafe Venice, Venice Wine and Coffee, Venice MainStreet and online in our store.

Come enjoy food from each restaurant, the spirit of competition, a chance to be a judge and an outstanding good time.

Sunday Oct 12, 2014 4pm - 8pm Fins at Sharky's 1600 Harbor Drive South.

Art, History & Culture Abound

Venice TheatreAlong with the historical resources and attractions featured on the History of Venice section, Venice’s Cultural Corridor is active year-round.  Catch a show at Venice Theatre , enjoy the latest exhibit at the Venice Art Center, or find out what’s happening at the Venice Community Center.  The Venice Library is also a great place to spend an afternoon.  Look into seasonal performances of the Venice Symphony.  And whether you think of them as indoor or outdoor activities, shopping and dining are always options in historic Downtown Venice!

For more information on area attractions, visit the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce and the Sarasota Convention and Visitors Bureau.
