Iron Chef Tucson Culinary Experience 2015

I ventured out in the 108 degree heat on Saturday to shoot some photos at the Iron Chef Tucson Culinary Experience. It was held at the Westin La Paloma Resort this year.

I wasn't able to stay due to a prior commitment for the competition portion of the event (that was John Hohn of Gringo Grill vs. Danny Perez of the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort. Danny was the winner, and this year's secret ingredient was.... bacon.

Beer tasting is a good thing!
