Iron Chef 2016: JETAA Portland’s 14th Annual Cooking Competition!

It’s time to sharpen those knives and dig up your best recipes as contestants, judges, and other hungry mouths gather for one of our most popular (and delicious) events of the year!

Date: Saturday, April 9th
Time: 12pm – 4pm
Location:  Gloria Adeboi’s home in NE Portland, RSVP for directions to Veronica Adversalo.
(Please respond by Thursday, April 7th and let us know what dish you plan to bring!) This is a BYOB event. Please plan on providing your own drinks.

There are three categories for Iron Chef entries:

  • Side Dish
  • Main Dish
  • Dessert

There will be prizes awarded to the 1st and 2nd place winners in each category.

In addition to the above categories, cooking teams from JETAA Portland and Pacific Northwest JETAA chapters will be facing off in our “Battle with Seattle” using this year’s secret ingredient: fresh wasabi root from Frog Eyes Wasabi of Pacific City, Oregon. Read more about this year’s special ingredient here.

We are inviting the Pacific Northwest JETAA chapter to join us for this event. This is a great opportunity to meet the members from the PNW chapter of JETAA.  They will be traveling from Seattle to attend our Iron Chef event and using the “Tatami Timeshare” program to stay with Portland-area members.

Hope to see you there!
