Hey Tucson, get ready to meet the Iron Chef contenders…

Thursday, May 30 from 5:30 to 7:30, you can get up close and personal with two-time reigning Iron Chef Ryan Clark/Lodge on the Desert and 14 other talented chefs who want to knock him off his culinary pedestal.

Watch (and sample culinary masterpieces) as these talented men and women preview their skills with the hope of becoming the one who will compete head-to-head, toe to toe, and whisk to whisk during the Iron Chef Tucson competition at Loews Ventana Canyon on Saturday July 6 during the 2013 Culinary Weekend.

The cost is $3/pp or $5/couple. 100% of all proceeds benefit the Tucson Advertising Federation Educational Foundation.
