A bit of this, a bit of that, and they're off . . .

Fresh ingredients make cooking fun, tasty, rewarding.

The secret ingredients revealed--fresh seafood and cheese. The competition required each chef to make three dishes and to use a secret ingredient in two of them. I'm not sure, but I'll find out soon, if that had to be two different secret ingredients.

I didn't get a shot of the secret ingredients themselves because I felt it would be uncouth to walk up there behind the chefs while they were competing. And afterwards I was too busy eating and taking photos to even think of it. More about eating tomorrow.

I love watching cooking shows. This competition is almost like the Iron Chef show.

Awesome series of photos from one proud Mamma! Great action shots, and you even got Lamont taking a water break, how cool!

The two secret ingredients are just what I would enjoy, too.
