Watch some of southern Connecticut's top chefs battle it out for the title of "Iron Chef Elm City."
The 8th annual competition on Sunday, April 26, at the Omni Hotel at Yale features a showdown between chefs Carlos Cassar of the Copper Beech Inn, Ian Frew of Yale New Haven Hospital and Todd Ruiz of the Omni.
At the competition, a "secret" ingredient is unveiled and the chefs are required to create an appetizer, entree and dessert using the ingredient – all in one hour. A reception includes tastings from the competing restaurants and samples by the secret ingredient sponsor.
Tickets are $45 (or $65 for preferred viewing; these tickets are limited) and proceeds will benefit scholarships for Gateway Community College's hospitality management and culinary arts students and programs.
The event starts at 11:45 a.m. Information: 203-777-8550 or 203-415-3519; or visit stephenfries.com and click on "Iron Chef."
