That headline conjures up all sorts of scary images, doesn't it? But it's the truth, nonetheless -- I'll be competing in the Le Cordon Bleu Challenge at 7 p.m. Thursday in Dallas. I'll be on one of three teams, featuring professionals who know a lot more about cooking than I do, as part of a nation-wide event that the Cordon Bleu is hosting to celebrate adopting the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts name (yes, the one in France).
Tickets are $25, and proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House. You can sign up at the previous link. Among those competing will be Dallas chefs Dana Cox, Nikki Bodamer and Jeramy Kunkel, as well as former Dallas Cowboy Everson Walls and the Dallas fire chief, Eddie Burns. Who'd have thought that a cranky ex-newspaperman like me could be in the same competition with a Dallas Cowboy?
