Chef Jason Godwin starts prepping the items in the quarterfinal heat of the 2010 Diamond Chef preliminary competitions going on over at the Peabody Hotel right now. 


On the other side of the room, Chef Jason Knapp goes through the items in his mystery box. It's a Battle of the Jasons here! The items in this box include Denver cut beef, rum, kohlrabi, saltine crackers, gorgonzola cheese, and gooseberries.

The winner of ths round will advance to the finals June 8th at the Statehouse Convention Center. Heat 6 will begin shortly after this competition is concluded; Chef Daniel Capello and Chef Donnie Ferneau will face off for the other position in the finals.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
