Dueling Chef Challenge and Local Food Week

It's Local Food Week from September 17th through September 25th and I'm helping to kick off events by participating in a farmers' market shopping and cooking challenge this coming Saturday (9/17/11) beginning at 9:30am at the Colorado Farm and Art Market which takes place at The Margarita at Pine Creek.  I'll be taking on Chef Heather from Change Personal Chef Service...  Hethyr vs. Heather!  Jon and I get a kick out of this for several reasons.  The similarities/differences don't end with our profession and names.  We're both pretty tiny and around the same age.  I have dark curly hair and she has blond curly hair.  I have a black chef coat, she has a white chef coat.  Sort of reminds me of the concept of yin yang.  Or the movie Black Swan...  MWAHAHAHA!  ;)

Chef Hethyr Pletsch of
Everyday Gourmet Colorado
Chef Heather Mitchell of

I'm sure we'd both appreciate all of the support we can get, but since you're a reader of my blog, please come out and cheer on the Dark Side!!!
