The heat will be on! Cafe Nell's Andrew Garrett was been named the official challenger in this year's Portland Iron Chef Showdown, an annual culinary spectacle to benefit Children's Relief Nursery. He'll face The Country Cat's Adam Sappington, the defending champion, in a timed cook-off competition featuring a secret ingredient.
Also on-hand for the May 22nd event: Beaker & Flask's Ben Bettinger, Metrovino's Gregory Denton, and Iorio's Chris Thompson will duke it out for the competition's People's Choice award, and presumably, the right to fight in next year's main battle — Garrett was last year's People's Choice winner.
