Potted meat! Impossible secret ingredients! Tequila shots! Yes, Open Stove V descended on COOK last night, pitting sous chef Greg Garbacz from Sbraga against Smoke Truck chef and pickle-man Ryan Harrison in a 4-round, do-or-die battle for ultimate culinary supremacy.
The COOK crew was there to keep the crowd well-lubricated with drinks. Art and I were on hand to screw with the chefs, complicate their tasks and do our best to make them cry like little girls in full view of the public. And in the end, we crowned one man victorious. Here’s how things shook out, as told in photos–courtesy of COOK’s own Yoni Nimrod.
