Last night Linda and I were guests at Bruce and Nancy Hough of Jacksonville. They founded "Mobility Unlimited", a wonderful non-profit which helps workers with mobility problems stay employed and indepenedent. (mobilityunlimited.org) One of their fundraisers is "Iron Chef Jacksonville". It was really fun, and I got to be a judge! The secret ingredient? Fennel! Two chefs competed - Chef Chris from 38th Central, and Chef Trey from the RV Country Club.
One of Chef Chris's dishes was a fennel and roast nectarine salad. (I could eat this all day, hope it makes it to 38 Central's menu:
Chef Trey dazzled us with his Scallop Fennel BLT, and Fennel Fries
The voting was very close, and Chef Trey won the competition by 9 points out of a possible 220. Gotta' tell you, we're going to be going to both places, as these guys are OUTSTANDING.
