Top Chef Des Moines begins soon! Slip assignments have been made and will be posted here as soon as the marina approves our plan -- big thanks to Scott and Rusty for managing the docking plan!
Bring a few bucks cash with you -- we'll be bringing ingredients you can buy from the "ship store" and each team will pay a nominal fee to cover the expense of getting their initial bag of incredients, including the secret ingredient.
Contact Commodore Laura Kogen if you have any questions.
Friday night dinner on your own but after dinner meet us for games in the dockside tent. Bring your favorite game or play one of ours.
Saturday April 27 at 2 pm - games in the dockside tent
Saturday at 3 pm - teams will be assigned, small fee charged per team to cover cost of ingredients, so bring some small bills ($1s and $5s).
Saturday at 3:30 pm - cooking contestants, come get your mystery bag of ingredients and prepare to begin the competition.
Saturday 4 - 5 pm - Appetizer Top Chef Competition (competitors will sign up ahead of time so we know how many teams).
