In case you missed it over the holidays, I'm planning on doing the second Iron Chef on January 14. I think that I am still currently in need of 1-2 judges and 3-4 cooks. If you need the working rules, you can check them out here. The winner of Pear Battle will be returning to see if he can't begin a streak, and I'd very much like to see some serious competition for him. And of course, if you just want to come by to observe and to feast on the leavings, you're more than welcome.
As yet, the secret ingredient is wide open, and will be announced this coming weekend.
ETA: I'm also thinking about resurrecting the long-dormant Hong Kong Action Breakfast. If you're interested, let me know. Given everything that will be happening this month, it's entirely possible that we'd be looking at February to get it going. Still, let me know if you think you might be interested.
