From our friends at the Williamsburg CSA:
Come to our "2nd Annual Iron Chef Kohlrabi" on Sunday July 13 from 2pm to 5pm @ McGolrick Park in Williamsburg and showcase your best original recipe that features kohlrabi. McGolrick Park will be our "Kitchen Stadium". (Look for signs as you enter the park near the intersection of Nassau Ave & Russell St). Event will be rain or shine-we will move indoors across the street to our Wednesday distribution site if showers erupt.
We'll all sample each others' creations, and the dishes will be scored by our panel of judges. The winning cook receives an Iron Chef prize pack! (Entries should have a judges tasting plate with 5 sample "bites" or tasting servings & a general CSA tasting plate to share with the masses and a written copy of the recipe. Judging will begin @ 3pm.) Bring a picnic lunch (& blanket or chair to sit on) and a dessert to share. (Oh yeah, bring your own plates & utensils too!) We will be chilling & eating together in the park, challenging each other with our Kohlrabi creativeness. (You don't have to enter to come; Everyone is welcome to join in the festivities.)
Feel free to bring friends--we will be inviting other Garden of Eve CSA's in the City to join us. Animal friends welcome as well.
Last year the competition was stiff as raw and cooked Kohlrabi dishes were pitted against each other....Smack talk was already heard at the Kick-Off Cocktail party about secret kohlrabi recipes....
