Chef Daniel Capello ties a ribeye with string right after the announcement of the items in the third heat of the Diamond Chef 2010 preliminaries at the Peabody Hotel. 

Chef Diana Bratton peered into the box and started hauling out the items: beef ribeye, chayotes, mandarin quats, Brie, red wine and cornflakes. It'll be interesting to see how the items are incorporated. 

The competiton is similar to the Food Network show "Chopped" in how it's performed. The event is open to the public and will be going on until 7 p.m., so come on over.
